MIDWAY, Fla. (WTXL) -- The leading edge of a cold front is making its way into the Western Big Bend later Monday evening. Western counties are still under a tornado watch until 7pm ET (6pm CT). Now, the good news is that the majority of the threat appears minimal at best, but still possible. The largest threats with any severe weather include high gusts, lightning, and an isolated tornado. A few storms can produce heavy rain, though that threat isn't very large.

Overnight lows into Tuesday will hover around 70 degrees with a few spots possibly seeing upper 60s. Overnight, some showers/ storms may still be possible, though the strength will likely be limited as the daytime heating that helps energize some storms wont be present. Tuesday afternoon, the front stalls and helps to pump more moisture from the Gulf of Mexico, giving the region rain chances through Friday.

Daytime highs through Wednesday will range in the mid to upper 70s, near 80 degrees, and after that, a gradual cool down is expected with highs struggling to reach 70 degrees after the New Year.
