TALLAHASSEE (WTXL) - The drying trend continues today. On Thursday, only a few hot spots got in on the downpours while most of the region stayed quiet.  More of the same today with a lingering cold front splitting the region in half allowing for dry, but hotter air, to infiltrate our northwestern counties, and some storminess to boil up in our southeastern counties.  If you drew an imaginary line through Valdosta through Tallahassee down to Apalachicola, that would be the divider line.  So those cities and points to the southeast still have a threat of some scattered storms today.  Temps rebounding into the mid 90s across the board with upper 90s expected for our northwestern counties. Temps bottom out in the low to mid 70s tonight with some patchy fog expected, especially if you get in on the showers today. Saturday, the rain chances pretty much diminish to near zero as dry air infiltrates the region.  The Suwannee River Valley is the only place in the area that still has some rain threats, but the showers and storms should be rather limited.  Temps still sticky in to the mid and upper 90s.  On Sunday, the trough of low pressure impacting the open Gulf waters should start to make a return to the region as winds begin to blow from the southwest ushering in some of the storms tracking off the Emerald Coastline.  So our western counties have the better threat of some storms to return.  By the beginning of next work week, expect temps to stay consistently in the mid 90s during the afternoon while nighttime lows bottom out in the mid 70s again.  Everyone gets back in on the rain chances with will be scattered in nature once again.
