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

Pockets of showers and rain will move northeast this evening. These are unlikely to be active or severe.  Areas of clouds will remain overnight with lows in the mid 60s.  As a vigorous low-pressure system streaks into the Southeast, the set-up for additional showers and thunderstorms will reach prime levels Saturday morning.  Individual thunderstorms that may create large hail, heavy rain, and tornadoes will be possible by Saturday afternoon in the western counties near the tri-state region.  Another batch of similarly strong or severe thunderstorms may develop in the northern Gulf region later Saturday through Sunday morning, with yet another stormy area forming Sunday morning in the Suwannee Valley.  Severe weather chances are Enhanced, meaning numerous occasions of severe storms with hail, damaging straight wind gusts, and tornadoes are possible Saturday afternoon through Sunday midday.  Highs will be in the 70s.  Leftover showers and clouds may stretch into Monday as the severe threat ends and a cooler trend arrives.
