TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — A few strong to severe storms are possible Wednesday night into Thursday morning as a cold front passes through the Big Bend and southern Georgia.

Most of our counties are under a marginal risk for severe weather Wednesday, while far eastern counties are under a slight risk.

TIMING:

We're looking at a few rounds of storms beginning as early as this afternoon through the evening and overnight hours.

A developing squall line should bring a round of storms beginning to our western counties Wednesday evening around sunset, and a broken line of storms will move east through the night into early Thursday morning.

The storms will be exiting the Suwannee River Valley by daybreak Thursday and skies will clear by the afternoon allowing for dry weather, sunshine, and warmer temperatures by the weekend.

MAIN THREATS:

The primary threat for severe weather will be damaging winds and some small hail. An isolated tornado cannot be ruled out either. Rainfall totals will generally stay below an inch.

Severe potential will be highest along and west of the Flint River, mainly due to the damaging wind threat.
