TALLAHASSEE, FL (WTXL) -- A stationary front situated over northern Georgia and Alabama is still expected to slowly edge closer to the region in the next day or so. As it does, it will help destabilize our atmosphere making it easier for thunderstorms to form. In addition, southwest winds are expected to continue through the start of the work week, increasing the moisture within the air. The moist air will also aid in any shower and thunderstorm formation.

Tonight, skies will slowly clear from mostly cloudy skies to partly cloudy, and even mostly clear in the early morning hours. Overnight lows will stay mild, falling to the lower 70s with a light southwest wind. While there is a small, 20 percent chance, of seeing an overnight shower, most of us will stay dry.

Monday morning will start the work week off with partly cloudy skies and a few passing showers. Moving into the afternoon, skies will become cloudier as rain chances increase. There is a chance of seeing some thunderstorms and locally heavier rainfall, as well. Daytime highs will be seasonal, reaching the upper 80s to lower 90s. Winds should remain fairly light, about 5 to 10 mph from the southwest. Monday night will be very similar to tonight...rain chances dropping after sunset with lows in the lower 70s.
