PANAMA CITY, Fla. (WJHG/WECP) - Good Friday morning everyone and TGIF!
Today got off to a noticeably cooler start thanks to a quick round of overnight rains throughout the panhandle. Temperatures and dewpoints both fell to the 70′s by the early morning hours before the sun came and heated things up all over again.
It will be another scorching hot day despite this, though, as we expect more clear skies and low chances for rain in our forecast. Daytime heating will help coastal temperatures climb into the lower and middle 90′s while our inland areas could start to near the triple digits on their thermometer. Of course, with all the moisture in our air, we’re also very concerned with feels like temperatures climbing well into the triple digits once again. As a result, heat advisory is in effect for our area for the fourth straight day.
By this evening, there’s a slight chance for isolated showers filling in throughout our eastern counties. They’ll generally move southward/southwesterly similar to past days and would provide a welcome cool off to those in Liberty, Franklin, Calhoun, and Gulf counties.
Looking ahead to the weekend, temperatures continue to warm as high pressure continues its stranglehold on the southeast.
For today, watching for feels like temps in the triple digits nearing 110 degrees. Highs today are around 95 degrees. High pressure persists throughout our 7 day forecast allowing temperatures to remain in the mid 90′s as sun dominates the sky each day.
