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

A line of strong storms will arrive in western counties early this evening, carrying chances for heavy rain, frequent lightning, gusty storm-related winds, and isolated tornadoes.  This activity will steadily move east, likely reaching the Suwannee Valley before midnight.  Once the storm line passes through, leftover clouds and showers are likely for a few hours overnight, but the focus of severe weather chances remain between 5 p.m. and 12 midnight.  Scattered clouds may break to allow some sunshine Wednesday.  We'll remain warm and somewhat humid, with lows around 60° to the upper 50s and highs in the mid to upper 70s.  A cold front sweeps through Thursday morning, generating limited amounts of rain, followed by clearer and colder conditions by Thursday afternoon.  Weekend temperatures will quickly modify with sunshine and a shift of winds.

A Tornado or other severe thunderstorm watch is possible for the region later today.  Severe-related warnings may be issued as activity strengthens.  Stay tuned to Weather NOW on channel 27.3, or access our livestream at wtxl.com/live for coverage of any active warnings tonight.
