TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — Here's your forecast for the next four hours:

Good Friday morning!

It's another cool, dry start with temperatures in the mid to upper 50's and clear skies. Expect the cool and dry trend to carry over into this weekend as we're feeling fall-like. Afternoon highs will war up into the lower 80's through this weekend with winds from the northeast and mostly sunny skies while mornings hover around the lower 60's. Humidity stays on the lower end through this weekend as the forecast offers up low-stress weather with partly cloudy skies and no chance for rain. Most of the next several days will remain dry as temps return to seasonably mild/warm levels.

Tropical Storm Sam will strengthen while more than 1,500 miles east of the Lesser Antilles. It is expected to grow into a hurricane within a couple of days while moving west, then west-northwest over the weekend. Most long-range signals show Sam curving north of the islands bordering the Caribbean, which would limit direct impact risks there. Various other tropical disturbances exist with different levels of strength; none of them will have a bearing on the local weather pattern.
