Wednesday Forecast

Good Wednesday morning everyone!

Meteorologist Ryan Michaels says rain chances return to NWFL for the midday.

It's a quiet start for most of NWFL on radar, but you don't have to look very far for passing storms cruising across South Alabama this morning. That's our next frontal boundary sliding deeper into the Southeast this morning. We'll likely see our rain chances rising through the morning and into the midday. Go ahead and grab some rain gear to keep near by for one of the passing storms today.

Otherwise, the humidity and warmth has returned after the brief reprieve yesterday. Just about everyone is waking up in the 70s this morning. With the front moving south, plus the clouds and storms it'll develop, we'll likely see our temperatures only gradually warm up into the upper 70s to low 80s today.

As the front sinks south into NWFL we'll see scattered hit or miss storms developing along it. They'll start to pick up after about 10am and continue to be hit or miss through the afternoon before backing off a bit heading into the evening.

Yet we're not done with this front just yet! It'll stall out either just out into the Gulf to our south tonight, or possibly just close enough to the coast to provide a few more storms overnight for coastal locations, especially our southern most shores like the Forgotten Coast. Southerly winds push the front back up into the Panhandle tomorrow. We'll likely see another day of scattered hit or miss storms passing through the Panhandle before it moves far enough north into the afternoon, taking the storms up into AL and GA.

Our pattern will turn very summery then heading into the late week and weekend. Heat cranks up with mid to upper 80s possible on the coast to near 90° inland. The heat and humidity will be enough to produce some afternoon scattered storms, or brief hit or miss storms mainly for inland areas Saturday but perhaps a bit more encompassing Sunday and Memorial Day Monday.

Bottom Line...
For today, partly to mostly cloudy skies with scattered, hit or miss, storms. Rain chance today around 70%. Highs today around 80°. Your 7 Day Forecast keeps us a bit unsettled through the midweek with a bit more of a summery setup for the weekend.
