Well the clearing continues and the dry weather should settle on in for the first part of your weekend. Tonight, clear skies and calm winds allow temperatures to drop into the low 50s.  Saturday afternoon conditions rebound nicely to the low 80s--quite seasonable and also quite dry as well; winds out of the north will help usher in dry air.  But how quickly the tables turn once again as we see a low develop in the Gulf of Mexico throwing rain showers into our area by Sunday.  They will start along the Gulf shore when you wake up for church but will quickly bleed through the entire Big Bend and South Georgia by lunchtime.  An embedded thunderstorm can't be ruled out.  As of now, these storms don't look severe, but as we continue to tweak the forecast, we'll give you updates on and on ABC27 weekend editions.  Temperatures stay mild on Sunday morning in the mid 50s only heating to the mid 70s by the afternoon because we'll be socked in with cloud cover and rainfall.  We hold onto some scattered showers in the early morning hours to start your work week which will keep lows only in the mid 60s, but then we clear by the afternoon. Highs warm into the low 80s.  A real summer-like pattern starts back up as temperatures warm into the mid 80s for Tuesday through Friday with lows only in the mid 60s.  An isolated threat of an afternoon thunderstorm will persist throughout the week.  Have an awesome weekend!
