TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — The First Alert Weather Team is keeping a close eye on Sunday night as the Storm Prediction Center has the entire region under a slight risk for severe weather.
A warm front will push through the area during the day. A more unstable air mass will move into the area as we go into the evening. Areas along the Apalachicola River Area could see some strong storms during the afternoon and into the early evening as the warm front begins to move into the area.
The best chance for strong storms in the Big Bend and Southern Georgia will be late tonight into Monday morning. A line of showers and storms will begin to move through the area from west to east between 8:00 p.m. Sunday and 6:00 a.m. Monday. Some of these storms could produce gusty winds, heavy downpours and a weak tornado. After the line of storms moves through, much of Monday will be dry but cooler.
A cold front behind the line of storms will usher in colder air into the region Monday. Find the heavy coats, because you'll need them for the start of Tuesday as temperatures dip into the low 30s.
