MIDWAY, Fl. (WTXL) -- Happy New Year! Today is expected to be a stormy one. Make sure you stay up to date with us on the latest on any inclement weather situations. You can do so by liking us on Facebook and following us on Twitter

A slight risk of severe weather (Scattered severe storms) exists for Tallahassee and the Western Big Bend, as well as SW Georgia (West of US Highway 319). A marginal risk (isolated severe storms) covers parts of South-Central Georgia. Warm and humid air continues to filter in from the Gulf of Mexico as a complex frontal system develops just west of us. Strong upper level winds along this region may promote the severe risk this afternoon and this evening. Highs today will stay in the lower 70s with widespread storms today (70% coverage).

The storms will last well into the night, with heavy rain likely. Because of this, FLASH FLOOD watches are in effect for western counties today and tonight. 

Into Tuesday, storms should die off and pass east of us, with sun returning. Highs will be in the mid 70s with partly cloudy skies by then.

Much cooler air will return after midweek, with potential lows in the 30s and highs in the 50s.
