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

We’ll have a general increase in cloud cover late tonight, leading to scattered showers and a few thunderstorms for the Apalachicola River basin which will weaken as they move east overnight.  Occasional spots of showers and thunder rumbles will be present through the morning hours Saturday amid considerable cloudiness.  The front and attached low-pressure system triggering the activity will shift into eastern areas by Saturday afternoon, continuing a chance for passing rain and thunderstorms.  A low-end chance for a couple of stronger storms with gusty winds exists Saturday, but severe weather should not be a widespread issue.  Lows tonight will be mild in the upper 60s, and highs may be confined to the low to mid 80s depending on how long cloud cover stays around.  A clearing trend is expected by sunrise Sunday with warming temperatures.  Another round of heat is forecast next week as another upper-level high-pressure area forms near the region.
