It's been a few days since I have made my last forecast. It was the weekend mess, an early morning trip and lack of sleep and focus that has kept me from the metaphorical forecast desk. Now, I am back.
A developing cold front is expected to move towards the area later on Friday, but not be a direct impact to the Gainesville area. NWS-JAX is calling for more of an impact in the Georgia area, leaving rain chances relatively low for us. Also, a strong southwest flow should keep the east coast seabreeze pinned to the coastline. Model guidance doesn't show anything too interesting impacting GNV on Friday.
I think if we get any storms, the will come from the west and southwest and could have an impact in the late morning or early afternoon.
For tonight, partly cloudy skies with a morning low near 74. Friday, expect partly cloudy skies with a chance of showers and storms. I'll call for a high near 92.
Check back tomorrow night for the next forecast. I'll be watching the front to see how this will impact the weekend. Plus there is one wave in the tropical Atlantic with a low immediate concern for development. I'll be watching that, too.
Keep an eye on my Twitter updates for the latest Gainesville weather.
