Good evening! Today's weather in Gainesville was a little different. It was hot, but not as bad as it could be in a typical Florida afternoon. The passage of the cold front yesterday helped keep things fairly dry over the North Central Florida area.
It seems that the front that has passed us is stationary over Central Florida (from just north of Cape Canaveral southwest to Bradenton). However, according to NWS-JAX, the building ridge will help force the front back towards the north and increase moisture and, therefore, rain chances Tuesday. NWS-JAX is noting a tropical wave approaching the area on Wednesday, but rain chances don't seem to reflect much of an impact. Will keep an eye on it. Still, Tuesday seems to possibly be a wet day as NWS-JAX has the rain chances for the area at 70 percent.
For tonight, partly cloudy with a low near 71. Tuesday, partly cloudy with a good chance of showers and thunderstorms. Expect a high near 89.
