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

A weakening band of rain and thunderstorms is set to enter the area overnight.  Ahead of its arrival, increasing clouds are expected with continued warm and humid conditions.  Most of the late rain is forecast to impact locations near the Apalachicola and tri-river regions, then shifting early in the morning to Big Bend coastal and nearby interior points.  Some heavier downpours are possible, with isolated cases of strong storm gusts.  A low-end chance for severe weather exists overnight in these regions, while eastern counties should avoid any excessive storminess.  Lows will be in the 60s, and highs will return to the 70s.  Breaks of sun are possible amid scattered clouds and a few showers in the afternoon.  The active pattern picks up over the weekend with a couple more waves of rain and thunder, some of which have a greater chance to produce severe weather elements for the local area.  Late Saturday through early Sunday may be the peak time for impacts from strong gusty winds, possible tornadoes, isolated large hail, and some coastal flooding.  The severity levels decrease by late Sunday with lower temperatures.
