The atmosphere was sizzling Friday across north Florida, with temperatures reaching the lower 90’s and heat indices topping 100 in many locations. A slower advancing sea breeze from both coasts has delayed the arrival of the typical afternoon showers and thunderstorms, and at the same time an upper-level disturbance was approaching from the north. All three boundaries are likely to collide near or just west of the I-75 corridor in Alachua and Marion counties between 7 and 11pm this evening, likely leading to numerous strong thunderstorms. The primary threats with tonight’s storms will be minor wind damage, dangerous cloud-to-ground lightning, small hail, and very heavy rain. We will be tracking the storms with your Weather on the 6’s on WRUF-TV and on our Twitter account @WRUFWeather.
