A push of tropical moisture is bringing some rainfall to portions of the Big Bend and into southern Georgia. Those showers are capable of producing heavy downpours and limiting visibility on the roadways. The cloud cover and rainfall helped moderate early morning temperatures into the low 70s before sunrise. The line of showers will continue east. More showers and thunderstorms are expected throughout the afternoon, as winds from the south-southwest push tropical moisture onshore. A stationary front situated right over the local area will work with the onshore winds to support shower and thunderstorm development. A 60% chance of rain is expected this afternoon, with a high of 89 in Tallahassee, and the upper 80s in surrounding areas. The rest of the week will have similar rain chances in store, in the 50-70% range. Afternoon temperatures for the rest of the week will be in the upper 80s to lower 90s. So far, the fourth of July will have a rain chance around 60% and a high temperature in the lower 90s. The Storm Team will keep you updated on the weather as Independence Day draws closer.
