A stronger wind out of the west will send the Nature Coast sea breeze in much faster on Monday. In fact, showers and a few thunderstorms could develop along it as early as 10am on Monday. The rain and thunder will become more widespread along the I-75 corridor and will likely impact Lake City, Gainesville, and Ocala by midday. By late afternoon, most of the storms will then push closer to the St. John’s River valley and near a stationary Atlantic sea breeze pinned close to the coast. The atmosphere further inland will likely stabilize by late afternoon and most of the rain for North-Central Florida should be over by 6 pm, making way for a mainly dry evening.
