MIDWAY, Fl. (WTXL) -- A DENSE FOG ADVISORY remains in effect until 11:00am ET for the Big Bend of Florida and South Georgia. Visibilities are capable of falling to below half or even a quarter mile.

This fog is a clear sign of increasing moisture in our area. A series of fronts are expected to drive into the region from Friday through Sunday, bringing the chance of rain and strong storms.

To start, Thursday will see foggy conditions with temperatures hovering around 60°. Highs on Thursday afternoon will likely be warm again, even with increases in cloud cover. Expect numbers in the mid 70s with upper 70s possible. Rain coverage will be minimal this afternoon (20% or less) growing after the sun sets.

Friday will feature a wet start as the first in a series of systems crosses the Big Bend and South Georgia. It will weaken as it pushes through our area, so thunder is not looking highly likely on Friday. Lows will range in the lower to mid 60s with highs in the mid 70s.

Saturday into Sunday, more waves of unsettled weather will move into the region. Both will be in very unstable environments with upper level winds helping to support strong thunderstorms. Because of this, there exists a chance of severe thunderstorms on both Saturday and Sunday.

Western counties including cities of Tallahassee, Thomasville, Valdosta, Bainbridge are under a slight risk of severe weather Saturday. This means scattered storms will have the potential to bring severe conditions with them. Eastern counties are under a lower-end threat, but severe conditions are still possible. The developing forecast may change from now until the event unfolds (It already has twice) so it is important that you stay up to date on WTXL.TV/Weather/News.

Monday, cooler air will filter in after the Sunday event. Expect breezy conditions with lows in the lower 50s and highs only in the 60s.

Tuesday into Wednesday, temperatures will be slightly above average, with mainly sunny skies! Expect highs in the upper 60s to lower 70s.
