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

Cloudiness will persist this evening with occasional passing showers, not directly connected to Hurricane Michael.  The hurricane's center (or "eye")  will begin its approach toward the eastern Panhandle and the westernmost Big Bend Wednesday morning, with worsening conditions for marine areas before sunrise, then an increase in southeast wind region-wide post-sunrise through the afternoon. Heavy rain will blow along with the wind, which can be sustained above 40 mph and occasionally gust about 75 mph close to the hurricane's center. Some tornadoes may occur on the outer eastern side of the hurricane, affecting the Suwannee Valley and south-central Georgia. Michael will weaken as it moves northeast across the Flint River region and middle Georgia but will still produce gusty wind well inland by Thursday morning.  Friday and the weekend will be sunnier, drier, and cooler.
Wednesday and Thursday are designated as First Alert Weather Days because of the high expectation of severe-weather elements in our area.
