MIDWAY, Fla. (WTXL) -- From the WTXL First Alert Weather Center ...

Clouds will further build and increase late tonight as a disturbance and a warm front in the Gulf move closer to our shores Saturday morning. Showers and rain will intensify along the coast before sunrise, causing a threat for stronger storms including wind gusts and waterspouts.  Many areas, especially near and west of U.S. 319, will encounter times of steady, heavy rain, which can add up to 2-3" of accumulation Saturday. Another system over the Mississippi Valley can contribute to strong and severe storms developing in the afternoon. Lows will start off near 60° at midnight, then temperatures will rise through early morning, reaching highs in the middle 70s by afternoon. A cold front will stall over the area Sunday, providing a focal point for re-developing rain and some thunderstorms Sunday and Monday. It will start drying out Tuesday.  Flooding is possible over the next few days, with total accumulations possibly exceed 5" in some cases.
