Thursday Forecast

Good Thursday morning everyone.

Meteorologist Ryan Michaels shows our Hourly Planner for Thursday.

It's the 1 year anniversary of Hurricane Michael. It's a much quieter start this morning than compared to a year ago, thankfully.

Satellite and radar are fairly quiet except for a few clouds down along the Forgotten Coast. We'll look forward to plenty of sunshine in our skies ahead for today. There's also a very pleasant feel out the door just about Panhandle-wide this morning as well! Most are waking up in the 60s away from the coast to near 70 on the coast with a light easterly breeze. Temperatures warm up steadily into the 80s by the late morning with highs topping out in the upper 80s on the coast to low 90s inland. But it should be a much more tolerable heat today thanks to lower humidity as dew points are down in the 60s across the Panhandle.

High pressure will carve out our clear skies for the next few days as it resides in the Mid-Atlantic states to our north. So more sunshine will be in store for tomorrow and the better part of Saturday before another frontal boundary moves into the Southeast.

This next cold front won't have enough push to clear the Panhandle unfortunately. It will likely stall just to our northwest. That will kick up a bit more cloud cover Saturday afternoon and into Sunday where a few stray afternoon scattered showers or rumbles of thunder may be possible. Don't expect any drought busting rain totals, but a few tenths are expected for the 20-30% of us who see a stray storm.

Bottom Line...
For today, abundant sunshine with a more tolerable afternoon heat in the upper 80s on the coast to low 90s inland. Your 7 Day Forecast has another quiet day ahead for Friday with a decent weekend ahead as well.
