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

The warming trend is underway with the onset of the southerly wind flow.  With only a few more clouds in some cases overnight, we'll still have a cool start to the day in the morning.  Lows will range from around 40° in the Interstate 75 corridor to near 50° along the Apalachicola/Chattahoochee river basins.  Cloudiness will generally increase Thursday as a modest front meanders in the Deep South before a very strong upper low approaches and produces a batch of rain and active storms in the Gulf coast region.  Highs tomorrow will reach the mid 60s to lower 70s before the shield of rain comes closer late in the night Thursday through most of the Friday morning time range.  With vigorous wind forces involved with this system, chances for isolated severe storms, along with waterspouts or brief tornadoes, exist before the system sweeps through, blasting the region with strong northwest winds and another cold-air surge to start the weekend.
