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

The daily thunderstorm cycle has only been slightly disrupted, but still able to trigger those scattered pockets of rain, lightning, and thunder, mainly across the western Big Bend counties.  Showers and storms near the Atlantic coast will move westward and may impact some eastern counties with spotty downpours this evening.  Rain action will diminish by midnight, and scattered clouds will remain with warm lows in the middle 70s.  A compact upper-level disturbance will dictate how many areas of rain and storms form Friday and through the weekend, since its additional moisture will likely fuel scattered but numerous areas of rain by the afternoon.  Highs will still manage to reach the low 90s.  Washout conditions are not expected all weekend, but anything that forms will be capable of dumping heavy rain and producing frequent lightning.  The nearby tropics will remain inactive this weekend, with the only point of interest located over 3,000 miles away in the far eastern Atlantic.
