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

Warmer-than-average conditions are expected tonight through Wednesday ahead of a strong storm system in the mid-South that will increase local chances for rain, thunderstorms, and even occasional severe weather later in the afternoon.  Overnight lows will fall to around the upper 60s to 70° as winds begin to increase from the southeast and south.  While the core of the low-pressure center rides well to our north tomorrow, the attached cold front will extend well into the Gulf and produce a line of heavy rain and strong thunderstorms, impacting the region from west to east starting late in the afternoon.  Areas west of the Apalachicola have the higher chances for damaging wind gusts and isolated tornadoes produced along the storm line.  The strength of the storms may wane later into the evening tomorrow as the system moves to the east.  Highs will reach the low to mid 80s before the storms arrive.  Leftover clouds and non-severe showers and storms may linger into early Thursday before any clearing trend starts later.  Temps will also be cooler leading into the end of the week.
