Rainy periods will continue for areas around and north of the Florida/Georgia state line Thursday night as the circulation around Tropical Storm Nicole moves inland from Apalachee Bay. There won't be any major increase in rain or wind intensity with the "landfall" of the storm center in the central Big Bend region. Overnight, showers will become more scattered and winds will shift from the southwest. Marine area will still be gusty with speeds that can exceed 30 mph. Water levels will return to normal values, with a bit of storm surge risk continuing along the Taylor County shoreline. Temperatures will be in the 60s and 70s overnight. Clouds will break a bit by Friday afternoon as highs try to get into the upper 70s. Before a Saturday night cold front, it will be mild and partly cloudy, but temperatures will fall to chillier levels Sunday with highs in the 60s and lows in the 40s and 30s early next week.
