Widespread storms tonight make way for pleasant streak through Tuesday
PANAMA CITY, Fla. (WJHG/WECP) - It’s going to be a very wet and busy evening throughout Northwest Florida, as another weather system moves through the southeast overnight. The Storm Prediction Center currently has all of the Panhandle within a level 1 risk for severe weather, with Bay, Washington, Holmes, Walton, and Okaloosa County falling within the elevated level 2 risk. Tonight’s storms could produce a few strong (>40 mph) to severe (>59 mph) straight-line wind gusts, and a tornado or two cannot be ruled out due to high wind shear. Of course, there’s also going to be plenty of moderate to heavy rainfall, which begins making it’s way from West to East just before midnight.
Overnight lows will be stubborn to cool tonight with low level overcast skies continuing until sunrise. Temperatures will fall to the middle and lower 60′s as a result. The winds will also pick up ahead of the front tonight, with east-southeasterly flow at around 20 mph.
On Sunday, the last of the storms will depart around breakfast time and the clouds will move out shortly after.
