A modest cold front is draped across the southern extent of the Deep South. Much drier air lingers just to our north, but in the meantime, the Gulf mugginess is keeping its grip on the region, fueling spotty showers and thunderstorms near and south of the cold front. The strength of the storms has been quite limited, but areas of rain are capable of producing downpours and lower visibility. Severe weather in generally not expected to be a major problem. Lows tonight will fall to near-average levels in the low and mid 70s. For Friday, the region will be split by the front, meaning rain chances will be lower in northern sections while scattered rain and storms are possible for coastal and Suwannee River areas of the Big Bend. Highs will reach the low and mid 90s. The weekend is looking borderline hot and humid with near - or below-average rain activity.
