TALLAHASSEE (WTXL) - There is a low-end threat of severe storms for parts of the viewing area this evening and overnight as a cold front advances from the west.

This system has already produced tornadoes and high winds near Pensacola earlier today. Because of this history, there is a threat for tornadoes and high winds locally, especially in the Apalachicola Forest, Forgotten Coast & Tri-State region.

The line of storms likely won't be as potent as it was in the far western Panhandle because the atmosphere is not as conducive for widespread severe weather, however the low-end threat of tornadoes and high winds will begin around 6 pm and last through midnight. 

If storms do turn severe, tune into Channel 27.3 for live, continuous coverage from the Storm Team, and be sure to download the ABC27 Storm Team Weather App to stay protected on the go.
