PANAMA CITY, Fla. (WJHG/WECP) - Good Thursday morning everyone!

We’re off to a quiet start on radar, with some upper-level clouds helping to produce a beautiful sunrise for the start of our day. Southerly winds are helping to pump moisture into our atmosphere throughout the panhandle which does bring the chance for a quick morning shower at the coast.

Temperatures are starting out in the mid 70′s this morning and dew points aren’t too far behind, which has things feeling rather sultry as you walk out the door. Temperatures will climb quickly into the middle and upper 80′s this afternoon and feels like temperatures will climb into the lower 90′s thanks to all that moisture in our air.

This afternoon, our active summertime pattern continues with showers and thunderstorms picking up at around the noon hour. As the sea-breeze moves inland throughout the afternoon, around 70% of us will see a shower or thunderstorm at some point during the day. Despite these high rain chances, it won’t be a washout once again, as storms will only provide an hour or two worth of disruption to your plans. Some of the threats with these storms will be frequent lightning and a few stronger wind gusts. By the afternoon hours, the best chance of some of these stronger storms will likely be north of the bays.

This weekend will see a continuation of this pattern, with a 60% chance for rain forecast for both Saturday and Sunday. There will still be plenty of dry weather and sunshine each day outside of these short bursts of rain each afternoon.

For the 4th of July, models suggest the active pattern continues which will bring some rain to your afternoon. As the sun sets and we lose the daytime heating needed to sustain the storms, things will likely quiet down for your evening plans and 4th of July fireworks.

Bottom Line

Active pattern continues with a high chance for rain each day, but none of these days will necessarily be a washout as storms will last only 1-2 hours in your area. Temperatures steadily sit in the upper 80′s with some humidity as dew points persist around the lower and mid 70′s.
