TALLAHASSEE (WTXL) - In the near term, conditions will dry out slightly with below average rain chances persisting, however in the extended forecast, rain chances increase significantly. Storms will taper off tonight and conditions will be completely quiet by midnight. As we head into the beginning of the work week, temps will start off muggy in the low 70s. We'll heat up near average into the low 90s on Monday with a few afternoon storms dotting the radar still possible. On Tuesday, temps will remain rather consistent with what we've been seeing, but rain chances will start to increase courtesy of a frontal system pushing into the Deep South and edging away the high pressure that has caused for a brief reprieve from the rainfall. That cold front will get unusually close to the Big Bend and South Georgia causing for widespread rainfall peaking on Wednesday. Usually during the summer time, cold fronts stay well to the north, but this one will edge rather close causing for a very wet pattern. Rain amounts through Wednesday could vary anywhere from 1-2". By the end of the work week, storm chances edge downward and return to near normal with sea breeze afternoon thunderstorms remaining a possibility.
