TALLAHASSEE, FL (WTXL) -- This week, the area will stay under a rather typical summer pattern. Plenty of heat and humidity is anticipated, with a chance for showers and storms each day. Rain activity will mostly be confined to the afternoon and evening hours.

Daytime highs will climb to the lower to mid 90s. Once you factor in the humidity, it will be feeling even warmer. Partly cloudy skies are expected during most of the day. Afternoon heat, mixed with the sea-breeze, may allow for scattered showers and storms to pop up. Rain coverage is forecast to be around 50%. While some areas may get a heavy downpour and cool down, other areas could miss out and heat up even more.

High pressure remains in control during the next several days. By Thursday, it will slide south of us. At the same time, broad troughing will set up north of the region. Since we will be sandwiched between the two areas, this set up will allow for numerous showers and storms. The upper level trough will continue digging into the deep south, creating wet weather into the weekend. The extra rain will help limit the heat and some areas may even stay in the upper 80's this weekend.
