PANAMA CITY, Fla. (WJHG) -
Good Tuesday morning everyone!
It’s a relatively quiet morning on satellite and radar as showers and thunderstorms out in the Gulf are diminishing before they have much impact other than drawing in a few clouds early on today. We’ll see another round of passing storms through the midday. Pack the umbrella, and keep it nearby, you just won’t need to use it all day long.
Otherwise, temperatures are warm and humid with many waking up near 80 on the coast to the mid 70s inland. Dress comfortably today, and again keep some rain gear nearby for a couple passing storms today. Temperatures warm fast this morning under the relatively partly clear skies. We’ll see highs approach 90 degrees for many today, maybe a few degrees shy of yesterday due to the daytime heating creating more scattered storms through the midday.
We’ll need to have the rain gear handy from around 10am to 3pm for passing storms today. With high pressure to our southeast pumping in quite a bit of moisture from the Gulf and a broad troughing pattern extending from the Plains to the Eastern US, we’ll see a favorable setup today and tomorrow for storms to develop. There’s a Marginal Risk for some strong to possibly severe storms where gusty straightline winds will be our major concern.
As the troughing pattern to our west lifts out Thursday, we’ll see our pattern return to a more sea breeze driven afternoon rain chance. As such, rain chances will be lower later in the week for a more widely scattered shot across the Panhandle.
For today, partly sunny to mostly cloudy skies with passing showers or storms through the midday, sometime between 10am and 3pm. However, you may only see the rain for roughly an hour during that period. Highs today reach the upper 80s near 90 degrees. Your 7 Day Forecast keeps us running unsettled through the midweek with rain chances coming down late in the week and into the weekend.
