After Sunday evening’s stormy weather and threat of tornadoes, the weather for the rest of the week is expected to be much calmer in the Alachua County region.

This morning will be mostly cloudy with a 40 percent chance of showers. Highs will be in the mid-80s and lows in the mid-60s, and in the afternoon, the chances of rain will decrease to 30 percent, said Zaaron Allen, a meteorologist at the National Weather Service in Jacksonville.

“Most of the hazardous weather was over with on Sunday night,” he said. “We don’t expect any the rest of the week.”

Tuesday through Thursday will all have a 20 percent chance of rain. Tuesday will be partly sunny, with a high of 86 degrees and a low of 64 degrees, he said.

Wednesday and Thursday will both have high temperatures in the high 80s and lows in the low 60s, and both days will be mostly sunny, Allen said.

The chance of rain will slightly increase to 30 percent for Friday and the weekend. Both Friday and Saturday will be mostly cloudy, with Saturday having slightly lower temperatures in the mid 70s and high 50s, Allen said.
