The Atlantic high pressure ridge extended westward across Florida while a Tropical Upper Tropospheric Trough (TUTT) feature over the western Bahamas and southeast FL lifted northward. Drier air north of the TUTT advected into north central Florida through the day. Showers and thunderstorms developed along the I-75 corridor and shifted inland through the day. Thunderstorms over north central FL in the evening tapped into the drier mid-level air on the periphery of the TUTT and created an intense but highly localized downburst near the Ocala International Airport, where numerous powerlines and trees were downed.
