MIDWAY, Fla. (WTXL) -- Tropical Storm Erika has dissipated into a disorganized wave, therefore the National Hurricane Center has discontinued issuing advisories for the system. Meanwhile, locally for North Florida and South Georgia, a disturbance high in the atmosphere has helped influence instability across the region and helped produce widespread shower and storm activity. A similar pattern may be observed Sunday, though likely more wet the further east you are. Overnight lows into Sunday morning are forecast to dip into the lower 70s. Sunday highs are forecast to be in the upper 80s to lower 90s across South Georgia and North Florida. Rain coverage is forecast to be around 30% west of Tallahassee and 40% around the Suwannee River Valley and South-Central Georgia. Monday may be somewhat similar with rain coverage at 40% and afternoon highs in the lower 90s, but cloud cover can help limit highs from reaching those values. Erika's remnants would likely arrive on our doorstep late Tuesday into Wednesday, and depending on what the storm system does before then, that could change forecast highs, lows, and rain coverage.
