TALLAHASSEE, FL (WTXL) -- A high pressure over Alabama is expected to slide eastward into the western Atlantic Ocean. As it does so, we'll see a more southerly wind bringing in warmer and moist air. An area of low pressure over Texas is set to move northeast with a line of associated rain. It's expected that we may see a few showers on Sunday from this low.

Tonight, our lows will fall to the lower 40s with a light east wind, about 5 mph. Our clouds will increase through the overnight hours, becoming partly to mostly cloudy by the morning hours. Rain chances hold off until the morning.

Sunday will be unseasonably warm with highs heating into the lower 70s. Winds will shift from east to south by the afternoon, but they'll remain light at about 5 to 10 mph. Cloudy skies will be on hand through much of the day with rain chances from mid-morning into the afternoon. These rain chances remain low, about 20 percent throughout the region.

Sunday night will be mild as lows fall to the lower 60s under partly cloudy skies. The rain showers from the afternoon are not expected to carry into the overnight hours.
