Wednesday Forecast - Afternoon Storms

Good Wednesday morning everyone!

It's a quiet start over our skies on VIPIR 7 Doppler Radar, but just to our northwest showers and thunderstorms are moving into the Southeast. Most of our morning will be quiet with the exception of a stray small light shower. Meanwhile, we have some developing fog to start the morning off with very mild and muggy temps in the low 60s.

I don't think the band of storms across LA, MS, and AL moves in until this afternoon. So we'll go with a slight chance of a stray light passing shower this morning, followed by a likely chance of a thunderstorm moving in from 1-4pm from Destin to Marianna and back west. A chance of a thunderstorm then moving toward areas like Panama City to Blountstown between 2-4pm. After 4pm, the showers or storms will be weakening, and become fewer and further between for areas further southeast in the Panhandle.

Temperatures this afternoon will move into the low to mid 70s under mainly cloudy skies. We'll catch a break in the rain after today's front, and temps will dip into the mid to upper 60s to finish off the week still under mainly cloudy skies.

Rain will return this weekend, timing is sill very tough to say at this point. But it does appear to be scattered showers through the day on Saturday(leaning right now on activity picking up in the mid afternoon), turning more steady Saturday night, followed by more scattered showers on Sunday. Early estimates of rainfall look to be around 1 to 1.5 inches through Sunday.

Bottom Line...
For today, mainly cloudy skies with a slight chance of a stray light shower in the morning, and a chance for a thunderstorm in the afternoon or evening. Your VIPIR 7 Day Forecast will push in a more seasonal air mass for the finish of the work week in the mid to upper 60s, with an unsettled weekend ahead.
