WRUF Weather

Spotty, but locally strong storms possible this evening

The Gulf of Mexico sea breeze will be the dominant one today, as the upper-level wind pattern has shifted slightly since the beginning of the week.  With a slightly stronger flow out of the south-southwest, storms that have already fired in Levy and Dixie counties will continue to slowly push northeast as other cells fire near or just west of the I-75 corridor by early evening.  If the Atlantic sea breeze is able to push further inland and reach the US HWY 301 corridor before sunset, the merger of the two could also result in some stronger thunderstorm activity near the Ocala or Gainesville metro areas between 7 and 10pm.  We will watch trends closely and keep you updated.

Urgent severe weather updates are available @WRUFWeather on Twitter, Florida’s 89.1 WUFT-FM, or on WRUF-TV (Cox 6 or over the air on 10.1).
