Severe Weather Potential This Weekend:

Scattered thunderstorms are possible today across north-central FL including Bradford County. Main threats today are damaging wind gusts and hail, with an isolated tornado possible.

Storms this weekend will also be capable of producing heavy rainfall, which could lead to localized flooding. Forecast totals are generally 1/2" through Mon across the area. More rain is on the way late next week.

Bradford County Fire Rescue

REMINDER - The Burn Ban remains in effect as long as the Local State of Emergency is in place. All residential outdoor burning is PROHIBITED and deputies will respond if a report of illegal burning is received to our Communications Center.

Yes, we did receive some rain and more rain is on the way Sunday and Monday but the ground underneath is still very dry and the windy conditions causes that moisture to evaporate quickly. Warmer temperatures also enhance the threat of fire. Please refrain from outdoor burning until the ban is rescinded.
