TALLAHASSEE, FL (WTXL) -- Hopefully you were able to get out and enjoy the weekend. Both Saturday and Sunday shaped up to be fairly nice with mostly sunny skies and warm temperatures. As we move into the work week, we'll see a change in our weather...it'll be out with the sunshine and in with the rain.

A low pressure system has been working it's way eastward over the weekend and is expected to be reach us Monday afternoon, before pushing away Tuesday morning. This system will bring rain and thunderstorms to us, with the chance of seeing some strong and severe storms. Scattered severe storms are possible from Tift county down to west Jefferson county and areas to the west. East of that line, severe chances are lower with only isolated severe storms possible. Winds will also be breezy as the system nears us until it passes.

Tonight, conditions will remain quiet under partly cloudy skies. Overnight lows will be mild, falling to the mid 60s. Winds stay southerly, about 5 to 10 mph. 

Monday will start off dry and partly cloudy. Highs will warm into the lower to mid 80s as cloud cover continues increasing. Rain chances will enter back in the picture for the afternoon hours and remain in the forecast. Remember, thunderstorms are possible and some may become severe. Winds will be breezy and southerly at 10 to 20 mph, with the occasional stronger gust.

Monday night, lows will fall to the mid 60s again with the chance of rain sticking around. The low pressure system and rain will continue moving through the area, impacting the eastern portion of the viewing area over night, with the possibility of isolated severe storms. Winds will remain breezy Monday night, much like they were during the day.
