We stay messy today in this slow moving weather pattern. Ribbons of rain will be off and on for all of Friday. On average you'll get .5"-1" of rain between now and Saturday night. The exception is close to I-75 with another 1-2" over the next 24 hours. This increases the flood concern for rivers, creeks and low lying areas. A cold front will drive itself over the region Saturday keeping the rain machine off and on through the early afternoon. The front will be close to the I-75 corridor around sunset taking the greatest rain chance with it. Our monthly "Saturday in the Park" concert series is at Ponce de Leon Park at 8:00 pm and the weather looks decent. I can't entirely rule out a passing shower but the bulk of the rain will be east and north of Tallahassee at that point. As you're packing for the concert know the ground will be a little wet and temperatures will be cooling quick into the 60s and 70s. Meanwhile, the sluggish upper disturbance slides more north and east into Sunday giving us an opportunity to dry out. These upper disturbances can be very tricky to forecast, as a result, we've left in an isolated chance for rain Sunday through the middle of next week. Cool air will fill in initially behind the rain Saturday night dropping lows into the low 50s by Sunday morning. Highs through Tuesday will struggle to get near 80° Questions? shoot us an email!

Be safe and have a great weekend!
