It's going to get cool again. Temperatures won't be quite as frigid as the last cold spurt that came through Gainesville, but the lows are expected to be around 30 degrees Monday and Tuesday night.

"Starting (Sunday) night we're getting back closer to normal temperatures, with a light freeze possible on Monday night," said meteorologist Matt Zibura with the National Weather Service in Jacksonville.

The warmer temperatures expected on Wednesday, with a high near 59 degrees and a low of 47 degrees being forecasted, will be accompanied by a 60 percent chance of rain. Thursday could be warmer with a high of 69 degrees and a low near 45 with a 70 percent chance of rain.

The rains on Saturday and Sunday only brought about a third of an inch, which Zibura said was fairly insignificant.

That rain was the tail end of a storm that wrecked havoc in the South and Midwest with thunderstorms and tornadoes.
