TALLAHASSEE (WTXL) - Only a handful of lucky spots saw a cooling thunderstorm today as we were under the influence of a ridge of high pressure giving us some intense heat. During the overnight period, skies will be mostly clear, but we'll have little break from the warmth and humidity with lows in the mid to upper 70's area-wide. An unusually strong cold front for late July will approach on Monday. This will mean another day of uncomfortable heat and humidity followed by some scattered thunderstorms, especially in the afternoon and evening. Some could be on the strong side packing frequent lightning and gusty winds. Believe it or not the front will push through the area starting early Tuesday morning and clear the southeastern Big Bend by Noon on Tuesday, which should confine any rainfall activity to the morning hours. Following the front Tuesday afternoon, comes a push of drier, more comfortable air. Humidity values will drop. Even though daytime highs will still be well into the 90's, temperatures at daybreak will be in the upper 60's and lower 70's. Rain chances will be almost non-existent from Tuesday night through much of Thursday. Starting late Thursday, and especially by the weekend, ample moisture returns; that should be enough to provide decent rain chances and a quick return to summery conditions.
