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

A vast feed of moisture, aloft and near the surface, will be the driving forces behind excessive cloud cover and elevated rain chances and coverage in the days ahead.  A strong upper flow connected to the Pacific will clash with a stalling front over the Mississippi Valley to keep weather conditions in the Southeast unsettled for another couple of days.  Individual smaller disturbance embedded in the upper flow can trigger scattered thunderstorms that can be briefly strong in a few cases, but the main threat being produced by these systems is locally heavy rain.  Flash flooding will be a concern across the western half of the viewing region and into the Panhandle through the middle of the week.  Southeast Big Bend locations may experience less rain coverage and overall lower rain totals through Christmas Day, when this pattern subsides and temperatures stay warm.  Lows tonight will fall to the mid 60s, and highs will be around the low to mid 70s.  Eighties are possible for highs this upcoming weekend.
