Charles’ Pinpoint Weather Forecast – Saturday, March 19

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) – Showers and thunderstorms rolled through Big Bend and South Georgia Saturday morning as a cold front moved slowly east just west of the viewing area. A slow move will bring potential for a redevelopment of showers and thunderstorms for the rest of the day as the front moves closer to the east. There is a low threat that some of these thunderstorms will become severe, with damaging gusty winds and hail being the main hazards of concern. An isolated tornado cannot be ruled out.

The cold front will cross the region from Saturday evening to early Sunday morning allowing sunny skies on Sunday with drier conditions. Highs will be mostly in the 70s.

Morning lows for Sunday and Monday morning will be in the 40s, but the morning low will rise by Wednesday as moisture returns to our area.

Another storm system is expected to move into the eastern United States on Wednesday bringing a chance of showers and thunderstorms. The Storm Prediction Center called for a 15% chance of severe weather for parts of the viewing area in its Day 5 (Wednesday) outlook, which is roughly equivalent to a level 2 risk of severe weather. Chances of rain will persist at least through Friday.
