Cloudy with light rain off and on tonight. Plan on some rain for the morning rush hour but not everywhere. Rain increases in coverage and in intensity toward lunchtime as scattered thunderstorms mix in. Expect a couple inches of rain, along with the possibility of a strong or severe storm. The motion of the active weather will be from west to east but at the same time a south wind will push thunderstorms inland ahead of the main area of rain. That means along the coast, and I-10 corridor you’ll have the marginal risk for a severe storm, with straight line wind gusts being the main concern. Stay updated to the weather on News 5, and on our website and weather app.
South winds for coastal counties and especially the beaches will be up tomorrow between 20mph to 30mph, with higher gusts.
By evening, the active weather will have moved east, exiting our part of the Florida Panhandle. As it all ends in the middle of the night, totals will be 1-2 inches in most areas, but other spots along and east of I-65 could get 2-3 inches.
Thursday through Saturday look dry, sunny and cool.
