After some stormy and dreary weather Tuesday and Wednesday, North Florida experienced an unusual influx of dry air Thursday. We saw mostly sunny skies, and felt that humidity drop just a bit for Thursday afternoon. For Friday, most areas will stay dry along and west of the I-75 corridor, but some spotty showers may move inland off of the Atlantic Sea Breeze. Most of these showers will stay confined in the St. John’s River Valley counties (Clay, Putnam, Volusia), but a few may push or drift towards the I-75 corridor from 3 to 6PM. Any rain though will be brief and spotty in nature. There will still be plenty of sunshine to enjoy the outdoors, and all areas will stay dry after 7PM if you plan on heading out after work or school tonight.
Saturday and Sunday will be a different story. More moisture is pulling into the atmosphere, as a trough approaches from the northwest. A wave of energy ahead of the trough may bring some scattered showers and thunderstorms across the area on Saturday, mainly from 2 to 7Pm. A few of those storms could become strong, with heavy rain. gusty winds, and lightning. As always, you can track them live on our interactive radar right here on our website.
Sunday, the trough will be right over us here in North Florida. We cuold see periods of heavy rain possible starting as early as 11AM, and lasting through the early evening. We will have more details on the timing of Sunday’s rain as it gets closer, but for now we encourage residents to have indoor plans for Sunday.
