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

A limited severe weather risk remains in place for western counties near the Apalachicola and Ochlockonee rivers, and especially in southwest and interior south Georgia this evening, as extremely warm and moist air interacts with an upper disturbance over the Chattahoochee River basin in west-central Georgia.  The focus for evening rain and thunder will be in the western and central Big Bend, where severe weather is less likely.  An isolated stronger storm with gusty winds can't be ruled out, though.  The south Georgia tornado watch is still set to expire at 7 p.m., with a lower potential for active storms deep in the overnight hours.  It will remain steamy and humid with lows in the low to mid 70s, and highs may still soar into the mid 80s in many locations.  The disturbance will be slow to depart, so scattered thunderstorms will remain in the forecast Tuesday, centered on central and eastern sections of the viewing area.  We'll wind down the thunderstorm chances beyond midweek, but temperatures will remain above average, and perhaps close to record highs on some occasions.
