Tropical Storm Claudette is located approximately 100 miles west-southwest of Levy County and is moving north-northwest at approximately 16 mph.
The Storm is a relatively small system, said Charlie Paxton of the National Weather Service-Ruskin. Cedar Key can expect only a half to one foot above normal tide, he said.
There is a 40 to 50 percent chance of rain and thunderstorms this afternoon for the Levy County coastal areas.
“All the rain is off shore right now,” Paxton said. “As for this afternoon, nothing is certain right now.”
