Tallahassee and North Florida are starting the day very close to normal, in the mid 70s before sunrise. Some areas may be experiencing some patchy fog or mist. It will be expected to burn off by the late morning hours. As the day continues, temperatures will increase into the lower 90s this afternoon. A 40% chance of rain is expected in the afternoon to evening hours. These showers and storms will come from the southwest and push in moisture from the sea breeze. The storms will be scattered and there is a possibility of an isolated thunderstorm being severe. Remember, if you are close enough to hear thunder, you are close enough to be struck by lightning. The storm strength should deteriorate after sunset, as it would not have the heating to fuel further development inland. Overnight lows will be in the lower 70s all week. A 40% chance of rain will be present until Saturday, and will mostly be fueled by a dominant summer sea breeze pattern in the afternoon. Highs for the rest of the week will remain in the lower to mid 90s, under partly cloudy skies.
