WRUF Weather

Umbrellas to Get a Workout This Week

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

MONDAY’S SPECIFICS

  • 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.

TUESDAY SPECIFICS

  • 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.
