WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — We're tracking a cold front that will spark severe weather for the deep South in Louisiana and Mississippi.

Those strong storms will arrive in Florida's Panhandle on Tuesday morning. But as the front enters Central Florida late Tuesday into Wednesday morning, the energy is lost. So only showery weather is expected by then.

On Tuesday, the forecast high is 82 and increases to 86 on Wednesday. Then cooler by Thanksgiving with a high of 79.

A slight chance for a few showers on Thanksgiving Day is possible, but the front is dissipating near our area, so no significant rainfall is expected. It'll remain mostly cloudy with highs in the mid to upper 70s.

A cooler start on Friday morning, then highs back in the low 80s Friday afternoon.

There are two areas to track in the tropics, but both have a low chance for development.

One in the Caribbean Sea is tracking westward has a 10% formation chance over seven days and the other in the middle of the central Atlantic has a 50% chance.
