Two Strong Fronts This Week

– First front delivers measurable rain Monday night

– Severe thunderstorms possible Tuesday morning

– Arctic air follows a second front Friday


Two strong fronts in three days will traverse Florida. The first arrives Tuesday and will produce measurable rain, maybe even a few thunderstorms. The second will deliver the coldest air of the early winter season on Friday, with a freeze likely Friday night.

 

Meteorologist Deborah Alberto has broken down the timing of Monday and Tuesday’s showers and thunderstorms. 

 

Two relatively nice days will follow Tuesday’s front, then the jet stream will make a major dive.

The coldest air of the early winter season will arrive Friday. Daytime temperatures will likely hold in the 50’s or even slowly fall by late afternoon. A freeze is possible Friday night as lows dip into the upper 20s or low 30s. Stay informed for more specifics on the temperatures following this week’s second front.

    Yes, S.K. – the heaviest rain will move north into south Georgia, but eventually some heavier showers will rotate through Gainesville. This is most likely Tuesday morning. Our forecast is for 1/2 to 1″ of rain in most areas.

    It seems like this first front has slowed down by about a day from the original forecast. Is that correct? Does the slow movement mean we will possibly get more rain?

    I noticed on radar that the individual thunderstorms were moving NE. Does that mean we will not get the large quantity of rain we see north of here?

    Thanks.
