MIDWAY, Fla. (WTXL) -- Happy Fourth of July! The holiday wasn't bright and clear for the entire day, however. A few severe thunderstorm warnings popped up in the region this afternoon along North Florida and South Georgia. The good news to this is that MOST of the activity should simmer down, though an isolated shower/storm cannot be ruled out for any fireworks festivities.

Sunday's forecast looks to be likely stormier than the holiday. A nearby disturbance across the southeastern U.S. will ride east into Sunday providing extra instability for the forecast zone. This means more widespread stormy weather possible. Coverage is at 60%. Highs can possibly still reach the 90 degree mark in the afternoon after starting off the early morning in the lower to mid 70s.

After the holiday weekend ends, the first half of the work week will likely be active in terms of thunderstorm coverage each afternoon as the sea breeze will likely be enhanced with the nearby frontal system. Rain coverage will start off at around 40-50% from Monday-Thursday. Highs are forecast to be in the lower to mid 90s and steadily increase as the week rolls on.
