(WTXL) — It looks like another shot of cooler and drier air is on the way to the Big Bend and southern Georgia.

The temperature outlook from the NWS Climate Prediction Center is forecasting at least a 70% probability for below normal temperatures through the first week of October.

Highs Tuesday will reach the mid 70s to lower 80s with cloudy sky and periods of rain. But after that, a cold front will rush in during Tuesday daytime, causing shifting wind and cooler trends by evening.

Clearing will occur Wednesday with lows in the 50s and highs in the 70s. It should be sunny to mostly sunny and cooler through Friday.

We'll see this pattern stick through early October.

While it looks like fall is getting an early start, we could certainly still see spurts of summerlike humidity and tropical activity in Gulf through the end of October.
