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

Tonight, spotty thunderstorms and heavy rain will linger into the late-night hours, then breaks in the clouds are expected overnight with low temperatures reaching around 70°. Saturday, a general increase in cloud cover is forecast, with scattered showers and few thunderstorms transitioning to periods of steady moderate rain late Saturday. Highs will be limited to the low 80s near the coast, and mid to upper 80s farther inland. The moisture connected to the circulation around Subtropical Storm Alberto will be responsible for times of heavier rain late Saturday through most of Sunday, with rain accumulations ranging from two inches in the Suwannee Valley to five inches possible near the Forgotten Coast and west of the Apalachicola River through Memorial Day. While Alberto won't directly reach our local coastline, the flow around the storm will produce rougher seas, dangerous rip currents, and a chance for isolated waterspouts and/or tornadoes along any storm bands that impact our region.
