Panama City, FL –
The National Weather Service issued a flash flood watch for all of northwest Florida until 7 a.m. CDT Thursday. An additional 2 to 4 inches of rain may fall during the period and could result in flash floods or minor flooding of the river.
A cold front as the Panhandle approaches on Tuesday will result in widespread rain in the morning and scattered rain or thunderstorms throughout the afternoon.
The front will slow down and stall in northern Florida from Tuesday evening to Thursday morning. This will leave moisture behind and lead to showers and pop-up storms every day. Some storms can produce heavy rains that could quickly cause water to accumulate on the roads.
The public is advised to “turn around, not to drown” when approaching flooded roads. Also, be sure to drive with your windshield wipers and headlights on.
