Also, from looking at radar, it seems the storm system is moving out a little faster than forecasts from yesterday revealed. The "back-side" precip is now passing over Gainesville. When this rain moves out, temperatures will still be above freezing and, therefore, winter precip is not likely.WARM LAYER ABOVE THE SURFACE WILL LIKELY KEEP PRECIP ALL RAIN IN
FLORIDA. BY THE TIME THE PROFILE OVER FLORIDA BECOMES COLD ENOUGH
TO SUPPORT SNOW...THE MID AND UPPER LEVEL MOISTURE WILL BE
STRIPPED AWAY AND LACK OF ICE NUCLEATION WILL KEEP ANY PRECIP THAT
FALLS AROUND MIDNIGHT IN THE FORM OF LIGHT DRIZZLE. TEMPS SHOULD
REMAIN ABOVE FREEZING DURING THIS TIMEFRAME SO FREEZING DRIZZLE IS
NOT A CONCERN.
