TALLAHASSEE, FL (WTXL) -- An approaching cold front has been responsible for the rain we've seen through the day Saturday. This front is expected to pass through the area Sunday, bringing with it drier air. After it passes, the front is expected to stall just to the south of the Suwannee Valley. What that means for the area, is we're expecting to see a bit more rain to finish off the weekend, mainly in the eastern half of the area. 

Tonight, lows fall to the mid 70s under partly to mostly cloudy skies. There's a 30% chance of a passing shower tonight, though most of us will stay dry. Winds will stay westerly until the front passes early Sunday morning. Then, they will become northwesterly.

Sunday, thanks to the cold front, we've got another chance of rain and thunderstorms, 40 to 60%. The highest chance of rain will be in the eastern half of the area, which is closest to where the front stalled. These rain chances will decrease through the evening. Daytime highs will be in the mid 80s in the east to near 90 degrees in the western Big Bend and southwest Georgia. Winds will become northeasterly in the afternoon with some areas being breezy.

Sunday night lows will feel more seasonal, falling to the lower 70s with partly cloudy skies. Winds remain northeasterly, but should be light, about 5 mph.
