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

The corridor of scattered showers, rain, and isolated thunder will impact the Forgotten Coast, central Big Bend, and south-central Georgia communities off and on through this evening and early tomorrow morning.  That means umbrellas, ponchos, and other rain gear would be handy to have as you venture out for New Year's Eve activities.  Severe weather is not expected, and any heavier rain should be brief except for some coastal areas.  The boundary keeping the region unsettled will slowly sink to the southeast, continuing rain chances through parts of New Year's Day.  Late-night temperatures will be mild in the 60s, then fall into the 50s before sunrise.  With a new cool air source coming in, highs will be slow to rebound back into the low to mid 60s.  Areas in the southeast Big Bend and Suwannee valley may still reach or exceed 70° before winds shift.  The remainder of the weekend will feature ongoing cloud cover, less rain coverage Saturday, and cooler readings in the mornings and afternoon.  Rain chances may surge higher for the Southeast Big Bend Sunday with a disturbance swiftly moving across the north-central Gulf.
