MIDWAY, Fla. (WTXL) -- The story remains the same for the Big Bend and Southern Georgia and that is hotter conditions as we venture into mid-October. High pressure over the western Atlantic is helping to pull humid & warm winds from the south. This would normally help fuel thunderstorm chances for the region but due to drier upper level conditions, those rain chances stay low. Highs on Sunday will be in the upper 80s to lower 90s with lows in the mid 60s. As we advance into Sunday, the upper level dryness falters a bit with the approach of a cold front from the Mississippi River Valley. Chances are minimal (<20% coverage) on Sunday, but increase to 70% coverage on Tuesday as the frontal system passes. Temps look to drop to near seasonal with lows in the 50s and highs in the lower 80s. A much appreciated change as we return back to normal. In the tropics, a few systems are brewing including a named tropical storm. None of them as of now are immediate threats to the U.S. More information is available on our Saturday Evening Tropics Check.
