TALLAHASSEE, FL (WTXL) -- There's a weak low pressure and trough sitting over central Georgia and is expected to slowly weaken and move eastward through the weekend. As this trough moves over the area, our air is expected to dry out. Drier air means less rain chances, but they are not out of the forecast completely.

Tonight, skies are expected to stay dry under partly cloudy to mostly clear conditions. Winds will stay from the west to southwest at about 5 mph. Overnight lows will be mild, only falling to 70 degrees.

Saturday will be another day of partly cloudy skies with a 40 percent chance of rain in the afternoon and evening hours. Those that do see rain may even hear a rumble of thunder or two, though any thunderstorms are not expected to become severe. Otherwise, we'll keep our winds light from the southwest, about 5 mph. Daytime highs reach close to 90 degrees for much of the area while Saturday night lows fall to the lower 70s again. Overnight conditions will be similar to those seen tonight...partly cloudy skies and a light southwest wind.

Father's day is shaping up to be similar to Saturday, but with a 30 percent chance of rain in the afternoon. If you're not seeing rain Sunday, then it'll be partly cloudy skies with a southerly wind on hand and a high topping off near 90 degrees. The weekend will finish off with a low of 71 degrees heading into Monday morning.
