TALLAHASSEE (WTXL) - The year ends on a warm and wet note with temps in the 70s all day long. A flash flood watch continues for our southwest Georgia and Florida Panhandle regions as 1-2" of new rain is still possible with locally higher amounts likely. Add this on top of an already saturated ground, and flooding becomes a concern. Flood warnings are also still in effect for the Apalachicola, Chattahoochee and Flint Rivers which will feel the effects of this new rain. As we usher in the New Year, we still could see a few pesky showers, so keep the umbrellas handy if you're heading out to any of the midnight festivities. The front passes by overnight, allowing temps to drop to the low 60s all day tomorrow, though we still keep scattered rain chances alive, though they'll be lighter and the flooding threat will be eliminated. Saturday looks dry and cool with temps in the 50s all day before another batch of rain moves through Sunday mainly impacting our southern areas. Temps stay cool through the first week of the new year with overnight lows in the 40s and daytime highs ranghing from the mid 50s to mid 60s by next midweek.
