Early Friday morning brought some showers and storms to southeast Alabama and southern Georgia. A cold front is progressing eastward, and brought rain during the early morning hours. Some storms contained lightning and wind gusts of 30 mph. Since then, the storms have fizzled out, but the air from that cold front will be impacted by the sea breeze to initiate shower and thunderstorm development during the afternoon, with a 40% chance of afternoon showers and storms. The warmup is rapid once the sun rises, and Tallahassee will see a maximum temperature around 94 degrees. Once the sun sets, the rain chances will lower, as the afternoon storms lose the heating and fuel needed to continue into the night. Overnight lows for tonight and the rest of the week remain in the low 70s. Drier air moves in tomorrow, setting rain chances back to the 20-30% range that is normal on a summer day. Father's day weekend looks good so far, and the weather seems to be giving outdoor plans the green light.
