.Widespread activity is expected today, and the Storm Prediction Center shows most of Florida — including Jacksonville — with a marginal to slight risk, meaning only isolated to scattered storms will hit severe levels.

Most of the state will average 1 to 3 inches with localized areas picking up over 3 to 4 inches.
