Showers, maybe a strong storm, to rumble through Thursday night

Don't expect much of a washout and, thankfully, any storm that develops has a low chance of being severe.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — The 10News Weather Team continues to monitor the chance for showers and thunderstorms on Thursday, with a low chance of some activity turning severe.

And just like the past couple of weekends, cooler weather will settle in afterward. 

Until then, let's break down the storm threat: Part of the Tampa Bay area has a low risk, or level zero out of five, for severe thunderstorms Thursday afternoon into the evening hours by the Storm Prediction Center. A slight risk, or level two out of five, has been outlined for north Florida into south Georgia.

Gusty winds will be the primary concern, but a few embedded stronger gusts of wind within some heavy rain will be possible.

The line of storms will roll through ahead of the cold front that will sweep through overnight. Expect the line of storms late this evening in the Nature Coast. The line then looks to push through Tampa Bay between 9:00pm-12:00am.

Most of the ingredients for possible severe weather will be farther north of the Tampa Bay area, and that's been highlighted with a slight risk in yellow.

The bumpy weather all will be associated with a storm system siding through the south, followed by a cold front that'll pass through behind any thunderstorms. Temperatures will take a tumble -- and even better -- so will the humidity.

High pressure will settle in for the weekend, knocking our rain chances down to zero and keep temperatures in the 60s and 70s through the weekend ahead.
