TALLAHASSEE, FL (WTXL) -- The scattered rain and thunderstorms we saw today will be sticking around through the weekend. There is a low pressure system sitting over Tennessee with an associated weak cold front draped over parts of central Georgia and the western portion of the Florida panhandle. Heading through the weekend, this low pressure will continue moving northeastward, but the cold front may be slower to pass the area. What this means for us is we'll keep the southwest winds on hand and a very moist atmosphere.

Tonight, skies will gradually clear with overnight lows falling to the lower and mid 70s. Rain chances remain very low, about 20 percent through the evening.

Saturday will be another seasonal feeling day with highs in the upper 80s and partly to mostly cloudy skies. Rain chances will be highest in the afternoon, peaking at about 40 percent coverage. This means scattered rain and non-severe thunderstorms could be possible. As the sun sets Saturday night, the rain chances drop off wit hovernight lows falling near 73 degrees.
