Overall forecast remains unchanged, although there is now a 60% chance of development into a Tropical Depression or even a low-end Tropical Storm in the next 48 hrs. Regardless, heavy rainfall, especially near any intense thunderstorm flare-ups, could produce localized flooding, especially over the FL Big Bend into s-central GA Thursday into Friday morning. Flash Flood Watches are in effect for those counties through Friday morning.
