TALLAHASSEE, FL (WTXL) -- Very grey skies Monday kept our temperatures slightly cooler than average for much of the area. Moving into the next few days, that overcast condition will remain on hand, as well as increased rain chances. The reason for this weather pattern holding so steady is because of an area of broad low pressure that has been slowly moving into the Gulf of Mexico. This low pressure has large areas of rain and thunderstorms that are spread far away from the center. This means that as this low nears land in the coming days, we'll likely see more rain move through the area, even if it does not track directly toward us. It's because of this additional rain that the Nation Weather Service has issued a Flash Flood Watch for Florida counties west of Leon County and Georgia counties west of Thomas and Mitchell counties, including Leon, Thomas and Mitchell counties. This watch begins Tuesday morning and will last until Thursday morning.

Tonight, we'll keep about a 50 percent chance of rain on hand with a possibility of hearing a rumble of thunder or two. Otherwise, mostly to partly cloudy skies will be seen with overnight lows dropping to the the lower and mid 70s.

Tuesday will be another rainy day with highs reaching the upper 70s and lower 80s due to the extensive cloud cover. Winds are forecast to stay light to moderate from the east at about 5 to 10 mph. Tuesday night will likely see more rain as well due to the disturbance in the Gulf. Lows will fall back into the lower and mid 70s.
