TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) - Rain chances will not only return Saturday, but will be higher thanks to a few features.

Saturday morning was mainly cloud free, allowing temperatures to climb quickly into the mid 80s in a few Big Bend locations as of 10 a.m. A trough of low pressure in the mid levels of the atmosphere was moving southeastward over Georgia based on the morning upper-air maps and water vapor imagery. With the trough providing extra lift, deep atmospheric moisture, and daytime heating, the lift and convective energy will be more than enough to fire up showers and thunderstorms as soon as late morning Saturday. Rain chances will be the highest in the afternoon and evening. There is also a low-grade risk of damaging winds and small hail with most of the viewing area under a level-1 risk of severe weather. After dusk, daytime heating will subside and bring lower chances.

Rain chances will stick around with mid-level energy forecast to swing down to the south on Sunday, but slightly lower odds of showers and thunderstorms.

Rain chances are forecast to dip slightly starting Monday and range between 40% and 50%. The National Hurricane Center has been watching the potential of tropical development in the Bay of Campeche. Details are uncertain with respect to a future path, but some of that moisture might make its way into the viewing area late week into next weekend. For now, rain chances are near 40% at the end of the week but could change depending on the forecast path of the disturbance. Stay tuned.
