TALLAHASSEE (WTXL) - A small wedge of dry air has descended upon the area allowing for limited rain chances through the end of the work week. A few sea breeze-induced showers could move in from the Gulf of Mexico, but these will mainly be far and few between and stay relatively close to the coastline. We'll call for mainly a 20% chance of rain for our Florida counties and a less than 20% chance for folks in south Georgia. Winds shift from the west and southwest today and tomorrow allowing for a pretty hot air mass to set up for a short bit; expect temps to be a few degrees hotter today than Wednesday in the mid 90s during the afternoon. Conditions tonight remain muggy with a little bit of fog cover possible and temps in the low 70s. By Friday, a frontal system that is giving the rest of the nation their first taste of fall, or even winter in some cases, will be advancing into the Mississippi River valley. Storm chances are expected to be a little higher for the tri-state region to end the work week, but overall, it'll still be drier than normal with showers far and few between. Temps still toasty in the mid 90s. For the weekend, afternoon and evening storminess becomes more likely as the front slowly advances into the region. Higher end rain chances persist into early next week with widespread activity peaking in the mid afternoon to early evening. Temps tick downward due to the ample moisture down into the low 90s for the weekend and upper 80s heading into next week.
