TALLAHASSEE, FL (WTXL) -- As we work on finishing this weekend, our typical summer weather pattern will try to return to the area. This is because the surface trough and associated upper levels that have been dumping rain on us these last few days have weakened quite a bit. These decaying features, in addition to a building high pressure in the Atlantic Ocean, will help enforce the sunnier morning and afternoon rain pattern.

Tonight, we'll see a few passing clouds with overnight lows falling to the mid and lower 70s. Winds will be fairly light from the south.

Sunday will begin with a few clouds in the sky before becoming partly cloudy in the afternoon. Rain chances will also be increasing during the day, peaking near 40% coverage. Daytime highs will heat to the upper 80s and lower 90s for most of the region with a south to southwest wind throughout the day. By Sunday night, rain coverage will decrease, leaving us with partly cloudy skies and lows in the lower and mid 70s.
