PANAMA CITY, Fla. (WJHG/WECP) - Good Tuesday morning everyone!

It’s another active start on radar with several scattered storms moving onto the coast this morning out of the Gulf. We’ll see this scattered, on and off, activity persist right through the morning and midday today. Perhaps the late afternoon commute will be a bit drier for most. So be sure to grab the umbrellas before heading out today.

Temperatures are a bit warmer out the door in the upper 70s near 80 on the coast to mid 70s inland today. We’ll want to dress comfortably, make it a light rain jacket if you do grab one.

The scattered storms and clouds produced today will actually limit just how warm we can get this afternoon. But still expect it to be quite stifling in the humidity department. Highs today under a mix of sun, clouds, and storms reach the mid to upper 80s. But it will still feel like the mid 90s due to the humidity.

There’s a stalled out front in the Southeast early on this week. That will lead toward another unsettled day ahead in the forecast for Wednesday. Lift from the front plus our very warm and humid environment is a perfect recipe for periodic showers and thunderstorms to develop throughout the day, from morning into the afternoon, quieter by the evening. They’ll be widely scattered and across the Panhandle today and tomorrow.

By Wednesday night the front starts to weaken. However, we’ll still have enough warmth and humidity in place to get afternoon hit or miss storms to develop for the rest of the week with a rain chance around 40-50%. Storms will be fewer and further between, as well as, short lived for the late week and weekend.

Bottom Line...

For today, mostly cloudy skies with scattered storms likely, rain chance around 70-80%. Highs today top out in the mid to upper 80s. Your 7 Day Forecast has another likely day for rain on Wednesday before rain chances return to a more typical summery hit or miss storm by mid to late week.
