Severe Weather Possible

A chance for scattered showers and thunderstorms will begin as early as this afternoon in the western Panhandle and begin to slowly overspread the area tonight.

However, the main action should come tomorrow as the front enters the state with good timing for some severe weather and winds around 15 mph across north Florida in the warm sector ahead of the cold front.. By Sunday morning, the front should have made it through all, or at least most of the area, though lingering winds in the 10-15 mph range should remain into early next week.

Tomorrow for South Florida, as the front approaches and the ridge gets broken down more, dispersions will increase. Along with the dispersions, winds will also get a little boost, as will the relative humidity. Rain coverage should begin to increase some, and storms that fire on the sea breeze could become strong to severe. The front itself looks to enter the area Sunday morning, and could give another chance for strong storms to develop again on Sunday.

The front will probably begin to bog down as it moves south and east as it will be weakening. We could again be looking at a front stalling out in South Florida – lingering rain chances from a stalled out boundary would probably continue into early next week, but a drying atmosphere would probably put an end to those, even if the remnants of the front remain into the middle of the week.
