TALLAHASSEE (WTXL) - Rain tapering off as the morning wears on with plenty of sunshine on the back end of this system that plagued us all day Wednesday with showers. A dominant high pressure system will be in place for the end of the work week and through the weekend. This will allow for cool overnights yielding very pleasant afternoons. It'll be breezy as the high moves eastward from the Central Plains today sucking down cool air from the Midwest. Because of this temps will struggle to climb to above 60° and it'll feel a bit cooler with that persistent, cool wind. Winds ease up tonight and skies clear which is a recipe for cold temps. Near freezing Friday morning with some light frost possible for our outlying communities. Highs again will be in the low 60s but at least the winds won't be a factor to end the work week. Plenty of sunshine heading into the weekend. Another cold night into Saturday morning with temps at the freezing mark and widespread frost expected. As the high edges eastward and off the Atlantic coast, flow will turn off the Gulf ushering in more warmth bumping temps into the upper 60s Saturday afternoon and even low 70s by Sunday afternoon. Nearing 70° again on Monday as our next front approaches. It could bring scattered showers but at this point it doesn't look like an all day affair. Midweek looks a bit breezy and drier and temps cool back down into the 60s.
