It has been a very wet and rainy day in Gainesville. It's likely that I picked up at least an inch of rain since 12:01 this morning at my apartment while Gainesville Regional Airport received nearly 1/2-inch of rain. Things cleared out late in the afternoon, but skies remained pretty dreary for the most part.
Currently, skies remain partly cloudy over the Gainesville area. The only spot getting rain at the moment is Palm Beach County and points south with the heaviest in Miami-Dade and Monroe counties. The cold front that helped instigate this weather was passing south Georgia this afternoon and is expected to make its way to north Florida (near the I-10 corridor) Wednesday morning according to NWS-JAX. There is a chance of showers and storms forming in the gulf in the morning and then swing by the GNV area like it did this morning. Both NAM and GFS guidance models show rain in north Florida around 8 a.m. The rain chances seem to drop tomorrow afternoon, but only to about 50 percent.
- Front forecast to drift a little further south to N FL
- Chance of rain for Alachua County in the morning (similar to today)
- A 50 percent shot of rain for Wednesday
- Most of the rain later in the day seems to be more in the central Florida area.
Tonight, partly to mostly cloudy with a chance of rain near dawn. Expect the morning low near 73. For Wednesday, chance of rain in the morning, then mostly cloudy with a chance of showers and storms in the afternoon. I'll call for the high to be near 92.
