Good Thursday morning everyone!
It's a much quieter start on radar, but not completely rain free. Some scattered showers and thunderstorms are still draped across the Forgotten Coast, and even a few more lie out in the Gulf. We'll see a more typical summery-type rain chance set up for the day. So don't be surprised if another pop up shower or storm develops around the Panhandle, and grab the umbrella before you head out.
Temperatures are still very mild and muggy this morning with most around 70 degrees to start the morning drive. And you could see just a little patchy fog in some spots. Otherwise, we'll have a good mix of sun and clouds through the morning, setting the stage for more pop up showers and storms today.
By mid to late morning we'll have enough daytime heating to see some scattered showers popping up around the coast at first where it's more humid. Generally southwesterly winds throughout our atmosphere will push these storms further inland, and in the afternoon with more daytime heating found north of the bays, we'll see these storms blossom a bit more.
So we'll carry a higher rain chance for our inland communities today in the afternoon. This will be a going trend in the forecast as we transition into a very summery pattern of abundant humidity and heat generating scattered, hit or miss, midday and afternoon storm chances.
Some days may feature a few more than others, but in general we'll be looking to extend this pattern throughout the weekend and into next week.
For today, mostly to partly sunny skies with scattered, hit or miss, showers or thunderstorms developing in the midday along the coast and moving inland in the afternoon. Highs today will be near the mid 80s. Your 7 Day Forecast will show a slight decline in these pop up showers as coverage will not be as widespread Friday and Saturday. But this summery pattern of pop up, hit or miss, showers and storms will continue into next week.
