This afternoon displayed the strength and might of the system in the Gulf of Mexico as storms and showers pushed eastward through our region. With a stationary front positioned just to the north of the region and the moisture from the system mentioned above, the ingredients were ripe for some severe weather to develop. In fact Leon and Thomas Counties had a Sever Thunderstorm Warning earlier today in the afternoon. Overall though, the storms were widespread and brought a few inches throughout the region. On a side note, Tallahassee broke the daily record for rain with over 2 inches, with a few hours still left in the day. In any case, low laying areas should be aware of flooding as a Flash Flood Watch will be in effect until 11 pm tonight. 

As for the rest of the weekend, Sunday looks to be slightly drier with rain chances at 60% accompanied by temperatures in the upper 80's in the afternoon hours. As we move in the next work week rain chances will dip down as we move into a more typical summer like trend with temperatures increasing back to the low 90's. 

As always, you can count on Storm Team 27 to bring you the latest weather updates.
