FEW SHOWERS & STORMS TODAY; T.S. MINDY WELL TO OUR EAST… Isolated showers and storms may pop up this afternoon into this evening, mainly in areas near the northwest Florida coast. Partly cloudy skies are expected throughout the day. The tropical disturbance we have been tracking for several days in the Gulf of Mexico became Tropical Storm Mindy last evening. The storm made landfall in the Florida Panhandle last night. Mindy continues to move away from our local area. Your full Thursday morning forecast details are below.

TROPICAL STORM MINDY EXITS TO THE EAST… Tropical Storm Mindy made landfall last night as a tropical storm near Apalachicola, Florida. The system ramped up to a 45 mph tropical storm before weakening over the last several hours. The center of Mindy is now onshore in the Big Bend region of Florida. The center of Mindy will move into the Atlantic Ocean later this evening before dissipating in a few days.

DRIER WEEKEND AHEAD WITH LOW (NOT ZERO) RAIN CHANCES… Saturday and Sunday will feature seasonal weather for mid-September with a 20-30% chance of rain each day, due to the afternoon and evening pop-up storms. High temperatures will be near the 90 degree mark with morning lows in the upper-60s.

MORE SHOWERS & STORMS NEXT WEEK… Rain and storms will return in the afternoon and evening hours of next week as an increased southerly flow off the Gulf of Mexico ushers in moist, unstable air. Showers and thunderstorms will be most numerous in the afternoon and evening hours next week. High temperatures will be near 90 with morning lows near 70.

HURRICANE LARRY MOVING NORTH NEAR BERMUDA… Hurricane Larry has weakened from its peak intensity a few days ago. The storm remains a category 2 hurricane centered only a few hundred miles east of Bermuda in the open waters of the Atlantic Ocean. A Tropical Storm Warning remains in effect for Bermuda as tropical storm force winds on the outskirts of Larry are expected at times today into tonight. Hurricane Larry will pose no direct threat to the continental U.S. The storm will continue to produce large swells and rip currents on the Atlantic coast of the U.S. from Florida to Maine in the days ahead.
