MIDWAY, Fla. (WTXL) -- From the Storm Team Weather Center ...

The next 24 hours appear to be increasingly damp and somewhat unsettled.  A lingering stationary front south of the region will become a focus for a wave of low-pressure action, lifting northeastward from the western Gulf into the Florida peninsula through Wednesday, throwing a bit of rain and excessive cloudiness into the local area.  While active thunderstorms are not forecast for the Big Bend or south Georgia, periods of showers and rain may add up to an inch of total accumulation in some cases.  Lows tonight will dip into the mid 40s to around 50°, and Wednesday’s highs may increase 10 degrees above morning lows thanks for northeast winds and a lack of sunshine.  There’s little promise for clearing Thursday, with another low-pressure disturbance keeping the rain machine in higher gear.  Noticeable clearing will occur by the start of the weekend, when temperatures will finally rebound above average.
