For anyone who hasn't noticed, it's still raining in West Volusia. Chances of thunderstorms will increase after 2 p.m.
And this week's rain will continue, bringing gusty northeast winds of up to 40 mph this afternoon, and 3 to 4 inches of rain along the coast from Cape Canaveral northward through Volusia County.
"Those living in flood-prone locations should be prepared to take action should flooding develop," the National Weather Service advised today.
Wet soil could lead to uprooted trees, as well.
The weather service forecasts a 70-percent chance of thundershowers this afternoon, followed by a 60-percent chance tonight, and 50-percent tomorrow, Saturday, May 4.
Mostly sunny weather is predicted for Sunday.
