The showers started a little ahead of schedule Sunday evening, and these were just a foreshadow of what is to become a soggy week in North-Central Florida. Most of the rainfall Monday and Tuesday will be light and spotty, but the week will likely be capped off by a stormy weekend as a stronger storm system moves through The Southeast. But first, a weak impulse of low pressure moving out of The Gulf of Mexico could trigger a few spotty thunderstorms Monday afternoon. This will be followed by weak cold front passing through Tuesday afternoon, possible triggering a repeat performance of those spotty afternoon thunderstorms.
THE BOTTOM LINE
- Early morning spotty and very light showers possible, then mostly sunny midday and breezy with highs in the lower 80s.
- Spotty thunderstorms are possible near the US HWY 301 corridor between 2 and 5pm, moving east of the St. John’s River by early evening.
- Warm, humid, partly sunny and breezy in the morning with a midday high near 80.
- Spotty, but locally strong thunderstorms possible near and south of a Cross City-High Springs-Jacksonville line after 2pm. These cells will be moving and/or redeveloping southeast through Alachua, Marion and Putnam Counties by early evening.
