Thursday Forecast

Good Thursday morning everyone!

Meteorologist Ryan Michaels showing the rain expected to move into NWFL today.

It's an active morning on radar this morning with a band of soaking showers to our northwest this morning. However, we'll get out the door relatively rain free this morning. You'll still want the rain gear as it finally moves in for the midday and afternoon.

Otherwise, temperatures are comfortable in the low to mid 60s this morning. A light jacket, make it waterproof, will do you just fine heading out, and don't forget the umbrella for later! While we wait on the rain showers today, temperatures will remain rather steady if not warming a few degrees into the upper 60s before the rain arrives.

We'll see the rain slide in from northwest to southeast over the Panhandle today. So areas around Hwy331 will get into the rain around 10 or 11am. Moving on to Hwy231 by 1 or 2pm, and then down toward the forgotten coast in the mid to late afternoon. Once the rain picks up in your area, we'll likely see bouts of it lasting right into the evening. But it will start to thin out and become fewer and further between around or just after sunset.

Eventually the rain all clears out overnight and we may be left with a little cloud cover to start off our Friday. However, clouds decrease to some afternoon sunshine on Friday and we'll keep that going into the better part of the upcoming weekend.

Temperatures will get quite chilly heading into Friday and Saturday.
We'll dip down into the widespread by sunrise Friday morning and it may be a struggle to reach the upper 50s for afternoon highs tomorrow once the sun comes out. Temperatures may even flirt with freezing in the mornings of our weekend ahead!

Bottom Line...
For today, mostly cloudy skies with midday and afternoon showers likely. Highs today reach the upper 60s. Your 7 Day Forecast clears out the rain tonight and gradually decreases the clouds tomorrow to a chilly Friday with afternoon sun and highs in the 50s.
