TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — Here's your forecast for the next four hours:
Good Thursday morning!
It's a mild and breezy start to the day with winds back from the south after a warm front has lifted up. We've got a mix of sun and clouds on tap for the morning with mostly dry weather. We'll see an active pattern in the Southeastern U.S. that will support times of scattered thunderstorms, especially across interior south and middle Georgia, late in the morning. A few of those storms can become severe. For most locations around the state line, scattered thunderstorms will develop in the PM hours, also with the ability to produce damaging wind gusts and a couple of tornadoes.
Because of the severe weather risk, Thursday will be a First Alert Weather Day in anticipation of severe storms in the region. Some storms can re-develop late at night with the same hazards possible. All modes of severe weather will be possible through the afternoon, evening, and overnight- including a few tornadoes. Highs will range from near 80° to the mid 80s, depending on how much sunshine can break through. Showers and a few storms will linger into Friday morning. A second cold front Saturday will keep a few showers around but eventually will trigger a clearing trend for Sunday.
