Jacksonville, Fla. (AP)
Forecasters say it could linger along the coast and gather strength before curving back toward Florida, perhaps as a hurricane tomorrow.
A hurricane watch is posted along a 150-mile stretch of coast in florida and Georgia, and many public schools around Jacksonville have canceled classes for today and tomorrow.
But some farmers in northern Florida and southern Georgia are hoping the storm makes a direct hit.
Fay is the rain they've been praying for at a time when a severe drought is killing their crops. The National Weather Service says 10-to-20 inches of rain could fall over parts of southern Georgia.
