Rain headed to Northwest Florida on Saturday
After a sunny and dry stretch of weather, rain chances are back in the forecast on Saturday and Saturday night for Northwest Florida.
Our next weather maker is an area of low pressure with an associated cold front. This system is bringing a mess of winter weather to the Midwest and the mid-Atlantic states, but it's only expected to bring scattered showers and rumbles of thunder to Northwest Florida.
Isolated to scattered showers will be possible during the afternoon, but scattered showers will become likely this evening and tonight ahead of the approaching cold front. The cold front itself will pass through the area overnight/early Sunday morning.
Widespread heavy rain is not expected. Light to moderate rainfall will be possible at times. Rainfall accumulations will be around 0.10" to 0.25" for Northwest Florida through Sunday morning. Severe weather is not expected.
Some wrap-around cloud cover will be possible Sunday, but clouds should become more scattered. Highs will be cooler in the 50s & lower 60s. By Monday, temperatures will be even cooler in the mid-50s.
