Storm Team Thursday morning forecast (03/05/2015)

TALLAHASSEE (WTXL) - It's the last warm day before temps cool off as a frontal system moves in. Temps this morning are on the uncomfortably warm side in the upper 60s and low 70s. Heading into the afternoon, temps will warm into the upper 70s, however a cold front quickly swoops in bringing scattered showers that will drop less than a quarter of an inch of rain. Tonight, winds increase out of the north ushering in cooler temps. Lows drop to the mid to upper 40s. Highs tomorrow will struggle to reach 60° as skies clear out. A few isolated showers are possible for our far eastern counties, but nothing widespread is expected. Saturday will start out chilly in the upper 30s as high pressure builds in. Ample sunshine will boost temps into the mid 60s but that's still several degrees below average. Don't forget to turn your clocks forward one hour heading into Sunday morning! Daylight saving time is here again. It'll be cool heading to church in the mid 40s and by the afternoon a similar trend to Saturday with temps in the mid 60s. Isolated showers are possible Sunday with scattered shower chances increasing Monday. Temps stay in the 60s on Monday and warm into the 70s by midweek.
