Good Friday morning everyone and TGIF!
It's a quiet start on radar despite some low clouds developing early on with some patchy fog possible for some. Otherwise, it's a comfy morning with temperatures largely in the mid 60s and feeling quite muggy.
We'll see a decent Friday shaping up over the Panhandle and it should carry over into the better part of the weekend before some storms head our way. Morning clouds should decrease a bit through the early morning to partly cloudy skies today. Highs will still be quite warm inland in the mid 80s. However, the south breeze on the coast continues to keep the beaches into the mid to upper 70s for afternoon highs as the Gulf waters are cool still near 69°. That south breeze will also bring a return of the muggies and it'll start feeling a bit more humid over the Panhandle, especially down along the coast.
As we head into the weekend, the forecast for Saturday shapes up very similarly to today's weather. However, on Sunday a cold frontal system will be working through the Southeast. It is looking likely that we'll have showers and thunderstorms passing through the Panhandle from west to east starting up as early as 10am to the west near Destin and finishing off in the east around Blountstown by 3 or 4pm. There's a chance for some strong to possibly severe storms as the front passes through where gusty winds and embedded tornadoes along a squall line feature move through.
For today, mostly to partly cloudy skies with warm highs in the upper 70s on the coast to mid 80s inland. Your 7 Day Forecast brings another very similar day to our Saturday forecast before storms move through on Sunday.
