TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — Friday brings another chance of stronger to severe storms in our area.

Friday evening, a cold front approaches from the west.

Ahead of the front, a line of storms capable of producing gusty wind, heavy rain, and a few tornadoes are possible.

The Storm Prediction Center has issued a 'Marginal' risk for parts of North Florida and South Georgia for this time. In these areas, isolated severe storm chances will be present.

Parts of Leon, Wakulla, Jefferson, and Franklin county and areas to our west are under a 'Slight' risk. This means scattered chances of severe weather will be possible.

The arrival time of storms around the tristate area is expected around 6-7 PM EST. The front progresses east throughout the night. Stronger storms are expected on the leading line of this system.

By midnight, stronger storm chances diminish as the line pushes through Taylor County.

Severe storm chances diminish as the front passes, but expect a rainy start to Saturday.
