The storm system that produced dozens of reports of severe weather across the central Gulf Coast states is weakening as it approaches the Florida peninsula. Nonetheless, a strong thunderstorm or two can't be ruled out Friday afternoon across portions of central and north Florida. Wind gusts up to 50 mph and a few lightning strikes are possible with the strongest cells.
The list below represents the most likely window of time a strong thunderstorm would arrive...
1 to 3 pm: Gainesville/Ocala
2 to 5 pm: Jacksonville/Crystal River
3 to 5 pm: Tampa metro
