The upper level low that has mostly cloudy skies over us today will stay to our south as we work into Thursday.

That setup will leave us mostly sunny and dry for Thursday with no t-storm chances to worry about. However, the upper low will interact with a warm front that will be stretched along the Florida Panhandle and clipping southern Alabama and southern Georgia. With enough moisture, lift, warmth and instability along the front, the Storm Prediction Center is watching this setup for Thursday afternoon and evening.

A slight risk of severe weather has been outlined for northern Florida, southeastern Alabama and southern Georgia. Areas in the slight risk will have a shot for damaging winds and large hail with the strongest t-storms that will develop. The setup seems to favor a few isolated tornadoes along the Florida/Georgia border with any supercells that could develop. The marginal risk surrounding that will be for any strong t-storms that may be capable of some wind gusts and small hail.
