TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — A stalled cold front to our northwest will lead to an isolated severe weather threat across parts of the western Big Bend and SW Georgia through Tuesday afternoon.

Rain coverage is increasing this morning as showers and storms begin to move in from the west. The bulk of Tuesday's storm coverage will reside along US 319.

A few of the storms in the tri-state counties can be briefly strong with higher wind gusts (60+ mph) or an isolated tornado, so any severe weather changes will be confined to those areas. Locally heavy rainfall is also a possibility as some areas could receive 1-2" in a short period of time.

Southeast Big Bend areas may not receive any rain through Tuesday evening. A passing cold front Wednesday will bring the rest of the coverage area showers and storms through tomorrow afternoon.
