DISCUSSION...
High pressure that has controlled the dry weather over the past
few days will begin to break down as upper level flow will start
to shift more out of the northwest. Still expect one more dry day
today before the breakdown occurs. Low level moisture will begin
to increase and that chances for thunderstorm will return mainly
across the central and western Panhandles on Saturday. A
shortwave trough will also aid in the storm development process.

Northwest flow is expected to remain over the area with continued
chances of showers and thunderstorms across the Panhandles through
at least Tuesday. Thereafter, expect the conditions to dry out
again, as the high pressure that rebuilt over the southwest
shifts east over the Panhandles.
