Rain finally on the way for NWFL
WEAR TV —
For the first time in a long time showers and thunderstorms are in the forecast for Northwest Florida. Clouds will move into the area on Monday ahead of a cold front with rainy conditions beginning after midnight.
A line of showers with the possibility for embedded thunderstorms will push across the area during the first half of Tuesday. Gusty winds and heavy rain will be part of the equation. By the afternoon, the line of showers will be gone, but a Tuesday afternoon shower may move in off of the Gulf of Mexico.
This week it’s a “double-whammy” situation as we’ll have another chance for showers and thunderstorms on Wednesday.
The Storm Prediction Center (SPC) out of Norman, Oklahoma has Northwest Florida under a “Marginal” risk for severe weather on both Tuesday and Wednesday. The primary threats will be the possibility for damaging winds and an isolated tornado can’t be ruled out either day.
Rainfall totals of one to two inches will be possible for most of the area with isolated locations possibly seeing as much as three inches between Monday and Wednesday night.
Thursday, Friday, and Saturday look very nice with cooler weather back in place and then another rain chance is setting up for Sunday into Monday.
