MIDWAY, Fla. (WTXL) -- The cloudy finish to the weekend will be a memory heading into Monday as clearing skies dominate the beginning of the new work week. High pressure from the north will guide overall winds from the northeast helping to reinforce the already chilly pattern over the region. The clearing will help overnight lows get even colder as now any heat gathered at the surface will easily be able to escape into the upper levels of the atmosphere.

Overnight lows will range in the lower 40s with some interior sections of North Florida and South Georgia possibly seeing the upper 30s. Highs for Monday will struggle to reach 60 degrees with the warmest temps likely near the Big Bend coast (but even then, those temps will struggle to surpass the 60 degree mark). Rain coverage will be at zero for the next few days as high pressure dries us off. Lows will range in the mid to upper 30s through Wednesday all across the region. The further north you live, the higher chance you have of seeing a light freeze, though that is no guarantee. Monday through Wednesday will likely feature a very windy pattern due to the north high pressure area and an area of low pressure to its east. The closeness of the two will promote stronger winds, which may add to the overall chilly feeling. Highs will steadily range in the mid to upper 50s through Thursday.

After this, a new area of disturbed weather will likely move in from the western U.S. This, coupled with warmer winds, will increase temps and give us rain chances heading into the weekend.
