TALLAHASSEE (WTXL) - Strong storms have rolled through the area Sunday afternoon and the action will likely continue to taper off as the day ends. A cold front out northwest of the region will push into the region later Tuesday, allowing for more rain opportunities. But after its passage, models are consistent with a cool down and a dry down. The cooling will likely be mainly felt during the morning and evening hours but the drier air that filters in will likely make it feel more comfortable in the afternoon, though highs are still expected to stay above the seasonal average of the lower 90s. Overnight lows Sunday night into Monday morning will likely be in the mid 70s with upper 70s in some spots, including the Gulf coast. Sunday afternoon will feature ample heat with highs likely reaching the lower to mid 90s with winds mainly out of the northwest. Tuesday's highs will likely be similar, in the mid to upper 90s. Rain coverage is expected to be at around 30% for Monday and Tuesday. Then the front will push through our region late Tuesday, giving us some cooler nights with lows possibly in the mid 60s and highs in the lower 90s (the lower dew points will make it feel more comfortable).
