The weather has improved very slightly over the Gainesville area in the last three days. It hasn't rained Sunday or today, and it's a possibility of that to continue Tuesday.
Surface maps from the HPC show high pressure over the Gulf of Mexico bringing either a light west or north flow (been variable) to the area. A trough of low pressure is expected to remain near the area Tuesday, but moisture content should be lower according to the NWS-JAX forecast discussion. Descending air should also limit rain chances for the area (keeping them near 20 percent). Therefore, partly cloudy skies should persist with a slight chance of showers and storms.
Tonight, some clearing is possible with a morning low near 69. Tuesday, partly cloudy with a slight chance of showers and storms. The high should be near 92.
I will be traveling to Atlanta early tomorrow morning to a special tour (more on that later) and the Inland Impacts of Tropical Cyclones conference. I'm tagging along with a professor at the UF Geography Department, two graduate students and one undergrad. I should be back in Gainesville late Thursday night. Check out my main blog (http://daweathamanroop.wordpress.com/) and my Twitter site (http://www.twitter.com/daweathaman) for updates. Forecasts should resume Friday night, if possible.
