TALLAHASSEE, FL (WTXL) -- A high pressure over our region has been the dominating factor for our weather, bringing us southerly winds and the cloudier afternoons we've seen these past few days. The high pressure is forecast to remain in place until Saturday, when it will weaken from an approaching low pressure system and cold front. This cold front is not expected to arrive until Sunday, but once it passes, we'll feel slightly cooler temperatures.

Tonight, the skies will clear with light winds on hand. Overnight lows fall to about 60 degrees for most of us. 

Friday will end our work week with the same weather pattern we've been seeing...sunny and cool mornings followed by hot and cloudier afternoons. Of course, there is still a small (less than 20 percent) chance of seeing a quick afternoon shower, but that's about it. Winds will remain light and southerly, about 5 to 10 mph. Daytime highs warm close to 88 degrees, with mid 80s closer to the coastline. Friday night will be another clear and cool night with light winds and lows in the lower 60s.

For the weekend, Saturday is expected to be pretty similar to Friday, but maybe a bit cloudier. Saturday highs will be in the mid and upper 80s with lows falling into the lower 60s. Sunday is when the weather pattern will change from the previously mentioned cold front. Sunday highs will be in the lower 80s with a 50 percent chance for rain. Sunday night lows will be cooler, falling to the mid 50s.
