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

The lingering stationary front stretching from Panama City northeast toward Waycross has kept the division between a drier, more stable interior and a moister, occasionally stormy south and east.  Pockets of heavy rain and briefly strong storms are possible near the central and eastern Big Bend coasts and the SuwanneeRiverValley through the mid-evening hours.  The front itself will meander for another day, but less shower and storm development will impact the region as a whole; still, a few thunderstorms may flare up in marine areas and the north Florida section of the viewing region.  Lows tonight will range from near 70° near the Flint River to middle 70s along the coast.  Highs will be between the upper 80s coast and middle 90s inland.  The front will dissipate by Sunday and moisture will once again overtake the area, bringing back the daily rain and thunderstorm cycle for most locations.  A much drier, hotter trend is indicated toward the end of next week.  The tropics will remain quiet this weekend.
