It looks like some wet weather is headed our way tonight with the possibility of some severe storms overnight. A warm front is pushing north from the Gulf of Mexico into Northwest Florida as a storm system to the west of us moves in as well. Both look like theyll make for some showers with heavy rainfall possible at times. We also have the chance to see isolated storms close to the coast. Our chance for severe weather increases Sunday as the warm front tracks northeast. We could see strong thunderstorms, damaging winds, and we cant rule out the possibility of an isolated tornado. Some flooding could be possible due to the potential for heavy rainfall. Stay tuned to Channel 3 News for the latest updates.

HEALTH:  Arthritis and Children story image
When you think of arthritis typically you don't think of children.
But according to the Centers for Disease Control one in 250 children are diagnosed with arthritis in the U.S. each year.
One local three year old however has been diagnosed with a rare form only effecting 1 in 100,000 in his age range.
Trevor Parsons "The biggest thing for and me obviously is just him not thinking daddy is coming home from work to hurt him every day."

Samanthia Colley "It hurts a lot, but I know that it is helping him and it is making him better so we've got to keep doing it."
"It would only hurt him once verses 30 times."

"Riley wouldn't move. Riley wouldn't get out of bed, he wouldn't walk or hold his cars he wouldn't do anything."

"It stings going in and the Llaris wouldn't sting. It's very much easier on his body."
"Meet three year old Riley he's pretty much your average toddler who loves to play outside except he has a rare form of arthritis which makes some things a little more difficult."

"On Monday Riley parents hope to get approved to use the Llaris medication through Medicaid."
