TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — Here's your forecast for the next four hours:

Good Thursday morning!

A cold front is on the way which will deliver some strong and likely severe storms to the Big Bend and southern Georgia today. We are under an enhanced risk from the Storm Prediction Center. We're starting off warm and cloudy, and will see some isolated showers develop ahead of the cold front through the morning hours. Severe storms will be possible this morning, but the primary threat we see will come later on this afternoon. A squall line of potent thunderstorms capable of producing damaging wind gusts and embedded tornadoes will sweep through the entire coverage area from west to east later this afternoon.

Storms will begin further west by late morning, and the cold front will push that squall line east through the course of the day. Many of these storms are likely to be severe, with 60+ mph wind gusts being the highest risk. An isolated tornado is also possible. Highs will be in the 70s. Storms will depart by Thursday evening, leaving a clearing and cooling trend for Friday and the beginning of the weekend.
