MIDWAY, Fla. (WTXL) -- From the WTXL First Alert Weather Center ...

Showers and thunderstorms have sprouted up near and south of a stationary frontal system across the stateline region, drifting toward the southeast.  Locally heavy but brief downpours are possible, with only isolated cases of intense conditions such as wind gusts.  The front will linger through tonight and Friday, still capable of triggering a few showers even in the morning, with lows in the mid 70s in general.  Areas near the coast and the Suwannee River are most likely to experience a few more showers and storms Friday afternoon.  The Flint River region will be in the midst of a drier air mass, and rain chances will be extremely low as a result.  It'll still be warm area-wide with highs in the low to mid 90s.  A tropical low off the Florida east coast this weekend will propel the front to the south, allowing more dry air to surge southward.  Rain chances will be limited to the southeast Big Bend, with areas of clouds and breaks of sun elsewhere.  Highs will be slightly lower in the 80s, with lows around 70° early next week.
