Tom Moore, Sr. Meteorologist, The Weather Channel



Bottom Line

# Tropical Storm Jeanne moving across north central Florida with maximum sustained winds near 50 mph, as of 11 p.m. ET


# Tropical storm warnings are still in effect from north of Cocoa Beach to the Savannah River, and from Anclote Key to Apalachicola


# Jeanne weakening but still bringing significant impacts to northeast Florida and southern Georgia


# Will move up across the eastern states Mon./Tue. with heavy rain and flooding




Tropical Storm Jeanne is slowly weakening, but gusty winds and heavy rain continues over parts of northern Florida and southern Georgia. Jeanne is moving to the north-northwest and its center is expected to move into Georgia by morning. Heavy rain, locally 6 to 8 inches, is forecast to accompany the storm as it moves northward overnight and flood watches have been posted as far north as southern Georgia. Squalls with gusty winds and heavy rain will also move northward along the Atlantic Coast into southeast Georgia overnight. Isolated tornadoes are also possible.


Rain and wind will continue to spread northward on Monday. Jeanne's track will take it through the Georgia during the day and into the Carolinas by Monday night. At that time the storm should pick up forward speed.
