TALLAHASSEE (WTXL) - Hard freeze warnings are issued through 10 am for our far northern counties near Albany. Make sure you monitor all 4P's: People, Pets, Plants, and Pipes. Have our faucets at a steady drip for the next few hour to ensure that the pipes won't freeze or burst. Temps will dip to the low and mid 20s with low 30s likely for folks in the freeze warning, including Florida-Georgia line counties along with folks in north Florida.

By this afternoon, it'll be a very similar set up to yesterday with highs in the mid 50s. Overnight, it's back in the deep freeze with mid 20s likely again. Currently, there are only freeze warnings issued, but I wouldn't be surprised if we saw a re-issuance of some hard freeze warning as well. Low 60s return by Wednesday afternoon as winds eventually turn from the Gulf of Mexico which will usher in our next storm system late Thursday into Friday. Upper 30s overnight to Thursday warm to near 70° in the afternoon. Expect scattered showers and storms throughout Friday, especially early in the day. This weekend looks cooler with 30s overnight and 50s in the afternoon as another area of high pressure sets up. However. Sunday and Monday should warm to the 60s.
