Good Thursday morning everyone!
It's a quiet start on radar for us in the Panhandle, however, you don't have to look to far off to the west to find showers and thunderstorms. We won't be concerned with any of those storms heading our way today. But we will be able to develop a few more this afternoon like we had pop up inland yesterday afternoon and evening.
Otherwise, temperatures this morning are very mild in the upper 60s to low 70s and feeling quite humid as well. It'll be another hot one today with highs pushing the upper 80s inland to low to mid 80s on the coast. But feels like temperatures may reach the 90s!
All of that warmth and humidity will create the sea breeze front moving inland off the coast this afternoon. Those southerly winds will help steer any pop up showers or storms inland and away from the coast today. So we'll go with lower rain chances and a bit more mostly to partly sunny for the coast today.
Meanwhile, inland areas will have a 30-40% chance of an afternoon storm to help cool you off from the days heat! The better chance of seeing one of those afternoon storms will be near Bonifay, Chipley and Marianna as well as surrounding areas from 3pm to 6pm. This pattern sticks around for the next couple days.
We may get a little enhancement for afternoon storms inland as a cold front from the west slowly sinks into the deep south by the weekend. Most of the storms Friday and Saturday will be inland and away from the coast in the afternoons until this front passes through on Sunday where widespread showers and storms are expected.
For today, mostly to partly sunny skies with hit or miss afternoon storms developing inland. Highs today reach the upper 80s inland to low to mid 80s for the coast. Your 7 Day Forecast keeps us running in this summery pattern of heat and humidity with a few afternoon inland storms for the next couple days.
