MIDWAY, Fl. (WTXL) -- Thunderstorms are possible this morning and early afternoon as a cold front moves in from the west. With strong upper level winds and modest instability, a low-end severe threat exists for most of the Big Bend and South Georgia.

Specifically, a MARGINAL risk covers most of the area with a higher STANDARD (SLIGHT) risk along and east of I-75 in South Georgia.

Temperatures on Monday morning will be in the lower to mid 60s with highs in the lower to mid 70s.

Rain coverage will be around 70% with severe risks on the low-end of the spectrum. These include strong gusty winds, with an isolated tornado possible. The threat should clear the area on Monday afternoon, with breezy winds rolling in for the evening.

The Marine Forecast is a bit rough today, with stronger onshore winds due to the approaching front. A SMALL CRAFT ADVISORY is in effect until 1:00am tomorrow morning.

Onshore waters may still be bumpy, with an elevated rip current concern. It may be best to avoid activities at the beach early today.

Tide Times for today are available below:

Thursday morning will be much cooler with lows in the lower 40s. Sunny skies will dominate as high pressure rolls in. Expect highs for Thursday to be in the mid to upper 60s.

Friday morning, calm winds may allow for more cooling with lows possibly falling to the mid and upper 30s. Highs will rise to the lower 70s.

Winds will shift back to the east/southeast on Saturday, ahead of a quick moving disturbance in the Gulf of Mexico. This disturbance will drive to the northeast, likely bringing showers and a possible storm to our region then. Rain coverage is around 40% so far (that may likely change). Highs will be around 70°.

Sunday is the better day of the weekend, with high pressure regaining control. Through next Tuesday, a steady warm-up with partly cloudy skies will occur with lows near 50° and highs in the mid to upper 70s.

You can catch my forecast on WTXL Sunrise starting at 5:00, as well as WTXL Midday at Noon. Chief Meteorologist Casanova Nurse has your forecast at 5:00, 5:30, 6:00, and 11:00 this evening.
