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

The abnormally wet pattern will continue for the region tonight through Friday, just without the severe thunderstorm risk.  The cold front which was partially responsible for the recent unsettledness has been ever-so-slowly moving to the east, allowing temperatures to fall below average.  The frontal system will likely stall across the southeast Big Bend tonight and linger through early Saturday.  Upper-level features will generate another low-pressure center along the front in the Gulf and push it to the northeast, forcing the renewed development of areas of showers and rain, with an isolated storm for some offshore and coastal areas.  The widespread, steadier rain appears to be aiming for coastal and eastern areas (SuwanneeRiver and I-75 zones) Friday, with extra rain chances will persist region-wide.  Lows tonight will fall into the mid and upper 50s, and, with mostly cloudy conditions and periods of rain, highs will struggle to reach the mid 60s.  Saturday will feature gradual clearing, leading to prolonged drying and clearer skies for next week.
