Cloudiness is increasing ahead of a fast-approaching Arctic cold front, so the warmth experienced today will be quickly shut down later tonight. A few showers are expected ahead of the front, with mainly light rainfall totals. Temps will begin to fall into the 50s this evening, reaching the low and mid 40s by sunrise. We may see brief, partial clearing tomorrow morning, but a stiff north wind will carry very cold air into the region. Temperatures in the afternoon will hold steady in the 40s. Upper-level winds will lift Gulf moisture into the chilled air mass and produce another shield of showers Tuesday afternoon. However, continued colder air will cause the rain to eventually change over into a mix of liquid and frozen precipitation late Tuesday night into Wednesday. South Georgia locations run the highest chances for snow, sleet, and ice accumulations, with shorter bouts of frozen precipitation occurrences in the interior of the central Big Bend, including the Tallahassee metro area through Wednesday afternoon.
The Storm Team will provide extended coverage of the impending winter weather conditions and possible hazards during this evening's newscasts, as well as additional coverage throughout Tuesday and Wednesday on-air, on Weather NOW channel 27.3, online here at wtxl.tv, and through our social media outlets.
