Forecast for Thursday 07.09.2009

It has been a rainy day for most of north and central Florida today. Is it over yet? Nope. There are still at least a few more days left to deal with the rain.

Currently, radar shows spots of showers and a few thunderstorms across southern Georgia and northern Florida with a line of light rain going through Marion County.

NWS-JAX is thinking that, due to the sharpening of the upper-level trough to the north, that the front to start to move south by the end of the week. HPC's short term forecast graphics indicate this with the front near the Florida-Georgia border at around 8 p.m. Thursday. NAM guidance shows more precip over the area than the GFS (similar to yesterday's guidance run). So, it appears to be the same song and dance as today.

Tonight, mostly to partly cloudy skies with a chance of rain and a morning low near 70. It's currently 73 in Gainesville and with the models calling a low of 73, with obviously 6 hours of nighttime left and skies expected to clear, I think the temp will get lower than predicted. For Thursday, expect mostly cloudy skies with showers and storms likely. Expect a high near 87.
