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

Scattered areas of clouds and rain are moving to the northeast, with locally heavy downpours and isolated cases of strong, gusty storm-related winds.  This activity will diminish as the evening progresses, but moisture and a few areas of clouds will remain overnight. Lows will drop to the mid and lower 70s.  It’s likely we’ll start off with ample sunshine in the morning, build a few more clouds by late-morning, with a few scattered storms possible by afternoon.  Some western areas will encounter an influence of passing showers and thunder rolling in from the Gulf even sooner, while eastern zones may be capped by building upper-level high pressure, so rain chances will be lower near I-75, for example. Highs will be within a few degrees of 90°. The moisture plume will be more capable of scattered to numerous showers and storms forming Friday and Saturday, with slightly drier conditions thereafter.
