Ocala Florida weather report for June 2015

It has been an unusually warm dry spring at least where I live in SW Ocala. However June is the start of our wet season. There is a little humidity in the air and we’ve had afternoon thunderstorms the last couple of days.

June is also the beginning of hurricane season. Every year I say the same thing. Ocala is one of the safest places in Florida for hurricanes. That’s one of the biggest reasons that I moved here myself. As far as I can determine Ocala has never been hit by a hurricane. In 1968 Gladys passed close to Ocala knocking down a lot of trees. I moved here in 2004 when the remnants of 4 hurricanes with tropical storm winds hit Ocala. There was a huge amount of rain and a lot of downed trees but that was about it. Here in SW Ocala near the 55+ communities I didn’t even lose my power.
