Another warm day is on tap for the region. Afternoon temperatures will be in the mid to upper 80s. A rain chance at 60% and some cloud cover should keep most local regions from reaching the 90 degree mark. Winds will be coming from the southwest and from the west due to an area of high pressure located in the gulf of Mexico. An area of unsettled weather and a cold front will drift southeast and end up just north of our area today. The frontal boundary will be over central Georgia and Alabama, but unsettled air and moisture pushed onshore by the sea breeze will aid in producing scattered showers and thunderstorms. The frontal system will slowly drift closer to North Florida and South Georgia in upcoming days and will stall out over the region into the weekend. Because of the slowing frontal system, rain chances will increase to 50-70% today and into the weekend. An umbrella would be recommended before heading out each afternoon.
