A persistent onslaught of moisture moving in off the Gulf of Mexico ahead of Tropical Storm Debby has continued to create slow-moving and intense bands of precipitation across Florida. The rainfall was most-concentrated in the extreme northern part of the state overnight where widespread flooding has occurred. As Debby continue to move closer to the Nature Coast, the axis of heavier rain is expected to shift further south on Tuesday. Cities such as Gainesville, High Springs, Starke, and Cross City will see a steadier and heavier rain by late afternoon. The rain could continue, almost uninterrupted, for the next 24 to 36 hours. Additional rainfall amounts of 4 to 8 inches are very likely, with the highest rainfall rates occurring Tuesday evening.
