Several boundaries, whether they be from a sea breeze or a weak cold front, have already triggered a few showers and thunderstorms this afternoon. As these boundaries continue to interact and maybe even merge, stronger cells are expected to develop by early evening. The most-likely locations for these cell-mergers would be near or just east of a High Springs-Gainesville-Hawthorne-Ocala line. The interaction of the various boundaries today may result in storms lingering well past sunset, and the slow nature of their movement could yield very heavy rainfall.
THE BOTTOM LINE
WHEN: Today 3pm to 10pm
WHERE: All inland areas, with greatest concentration in or near Alachua, Bradford, Clay, Gilchrist, Marion, and Putnam counties (see attached)
