Storm Team Monday evening forecast (03/02/2015)

TALLAHASSEE (WTXL) -The warmer temperatures are here to stay for the next few days! The low for tonight will only reach the low 60s and the high for Tuesday will be hitting that 80 degree mark. There will be a mix of sun and clouds and since the wind is transitioning into a more southerly flow the dew points will be on the rise and the mugginess will return. The temperatures will remain warm into Wednesday with highs in the upper 70s and lows in the low 60s. Thursday, another front will be passing through and that will bump up the rain coverage for that day to 50%. Once the front passes those temperatures will slack off for the weekend. Lows will be in the mid 40s and highs will be in the upper to mid 50s.

Storm Team Monday morning forecast (03/02/2015)

TALLAHASSEE (WTXL) - A muggy, warm work week ahead. Expect some patchy fog this morning, with mild temps in the low to mid 50s. Though we keep mostly cloudy skies around with one or two brief showers, a warm front lifting from the Gulf of Mexico will boost temps into the mid 70s. More patchy fog possible overnight with muggy air sticking around. Lows bottom out in the mid to upper 50s. Winds continue to flow off the Gulf of Mexico will boost temps into the upper 70s with a few rogue showers possible. Spotty shower chances continue into midweek with upper 70s and nearing 80° by Wednesday afternoon. Thursday is our transition day with a frontal system advancing into the Deep South. That'll drop temp back into the low 60s consistently cooling throughout the day. We'll bottom out Friday morning in the low 40s and stay cool through early in the weekend with highs Friday afternoon only getting into the mid 50s with more scattered showers possible. Upper 50s are in the forecast by Saturday afternoon, but Sunday looks more pleasant with highs getting into the mid to upper 60s and more sunshine returning.

Storm Team Sunday evening forecast (03/01/2015)

MIDWAY, Fla. (WTXL) -- This cool wedge of air and cloudiness will change somewhat for our Monday. Expect a mostly cloudy day to continue, but the wind pattern will change and that will be for the warmer. Clouds and moisture in the air will keep lows in the upper 40s to lower 50s and some patchy fog will be possible as the winds calm down before they shift from the south. Temps will warm up to above 70 degrees for Monday with some inland areas possibly reaching the upper 70s and flirting with 80 degree readings. A nearby trough and a cold front out west will support the cloudiness to continue with spotty rain coverage (20%) through Wednesday. High temps will be in the upper 70s through then. Another cold front will develop out west will jump the coverage to 40% and we'll see a slight cool down before another high pressure cell rises our temperatures back up to the upper 60s for next weekend.

Storm Team Saturday evening forecast (02/28/2015)

MIDWAY, Fla. (WTXL) -- A cool pattern is set up with a northeast wind and a trough of low pressure. Together, this wind and this source of moisture has allowed the day to be void of virtually any sunshine across the region with some light rain at times. The upper level flow is coming from the Gulf and that helps influence the cloudiness as well. We will see a steady warm-up with surface winds turning from the east and then south as we advance through the week with highs flirting near 80 degrees and lows in the upper 50s with partly cloudy skies. With the rain chance low but not out of the picture all week (20% through Thursday), an umbrella would be handy to have, especially on Thursday as we see a cold front pass and cool us off somewhat with highs in the lower 60s by late-week.
