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

 The anticipated shift from hot dryness to scattered unsettledness is getting underway.  We’ve seen a few spots of rain building in the lower Suwannee Valley and the northern Nature Coast region, non-severe and crawling slightly to the northwest.  The highest chances for evening showers or a thunderstorm will remain in the southeast Big Bend.  Areas of cloud cover will zip through the sky this evening and overnight, with warm lows around the 70° mark.  Partly cloudy to partly sunny conditions are forecast for Saturday as the broad upper disturbance creeps eastward from the Mississippi Valley.  The proximity of this feature will help activate scattered to numerous showers and storms in the Southeast, with local impacts possible Saturday afternoon in north and western counties.  Additional development of rain and thunder may become more widespread Sunday.  Highs tomorrow will range from the mid 80s west to low 90s east, where rain coverage will be the least around the I-75 corridor.  While rain may be heavy at times, chances for severe thunderstorms remain on the low side this weekend.  Elevated rain potential stays in the picture through the middle of next week.
