Mid-Week Rain & The Weekend Outlook

A cold front is forecast to arrive late Wednesday night and ahead of the front, showers and some storms are forecast for north and central Florida. Light to moderate rain before the front will extend from Jacksonville to Orlando throughout much of the day, with most of the heavier activity occurring during the evening and overnight hours. A slight risk of severe weather extends from Panama City to Tallahassee, and south along areas near Cross City from Wednesday afternoon to Wednesday night.

By Thursday afternoon, skies will clear and temperatures will be slightly cooler than average. In the mid 50's across Pensacola to Tallahassee, and 60's from Jacksonville to Ocala. In south Florida, from Orlando to Miami highs will stay in the 70's to 80's.

Despite drier air on Thursday, moisture rich flow from the south will rekindle rain chances across the state on Friday and into the weekend. The best chance for rain extends from Jacksonville to Ocala ranging from 40% to 50% . In south Florida, beginning Friday night to early Sunday morning, chances range from 50% to 60%. Gradual clearing and drier conditions will settle into the state by Sunday afternoon.
