PANAMA CITY, Fla. (WMBB-TV) – We have another beautiful day in store with lots of blue sky, sunshine and temperatures heading to 80 degrees along the coast, mid-80s inland. Winds will shift to the southeast through the afternoon up to about 15 mph. Dew points will be rising as moisture content increases in our atmosphere, so there will be higher humidity.

Friday’s temperatures will be similar to Thursday’s. The day will start off with a mostly clear sky, but cloud cover will build through the day. Isolated, pop-up showers will be possible in the afternoon inland as moisture builds across the Panhandle. A Mesoscale Convective System (MCS), the same complex of storms that brought storms to the Panhandle last Saturday, will likely develop over the Gulf and move southeast. For now, this system does not look to impact northwest Florida. However, if it develops more northward versus southward, then our rain chance could increase Friday. We’ll keep a close eye on it and provide updates as the day goes on.

Otherwise, heading into the weekend, the next system to watch is an area of low pressure and associated cold front. The pattern is trending drier on Saturday with only some isolated shower activity in primarily the morning hours.

Sunday and Monday will be a little cooler than normal, though mostly sunny, with morning lows in the 50s and afternoon high temperatures in the low to mid-70s. Rain chances will likely rise heading into the middle of next week with the potential development of an upper-level low that could leave showers in our forecast for days.
