The forecast for the next few days is a tricky one, there's no denying that! We've got a slow moving and evolving weather pattern that will favor showers and thunderstorms especially if you live west of highway 319 in both Florida and Georgia. An area of low pressure currently over Louisiana doesn't show much signs of moving in the next 24 hours. Lines of rain and thunderstorms will develop off the Emerald Coast and pinwheel themselves into our western counties. That doesn't mean it's not going to rain east of Leon/Thomas counties, the chance is just lower. Severe weather isn't a concern but a few afternoon thunderstorms may try to throw down heavy rain, wind and lightning. This pattern repeats itself through Friday before a larger disturbance moves everything east. What it means for you is a decent shot at afternoon storms Thursday through Saturday with highs around 80° and lows near 60°. The extended forecast doesn't get an easier but all signs point to clearing Sunday night into Monday. Stay tuned!

Be safe and make it over the hump today!
