TALLAHASSEE (WTXL) - A cold start heading out the door this morning. Temps have dropped sharply to near freezing region-wide and a persistent light breeze out of the north is causing chills or "feels-like" factors to be in the upper 20s. Plenty of sunshine throughout the day will quickly cause those temps to rebound but it only looks like mid to upper 50s will be attained this afternoon. The high pressure that keeps us cool and dry quickly bumps off the east coast and another wet system advances upon the southeast from the Gulf of Mexico. It may cause a rogue shower or two early on Wednesday with temps milder in the low 40s. Afternoon highs will make it back to the low 60s. But most of the rain will hold off until after dinner. Mainly our Florida counties will be impacted by this system as the main bulk of the energy passes to the south. Rain amounts will vary from nearly an inch for our coastal communities and Suwannee River Valley folks to just about a tenth of an inch for residents north of US 84 in south Georgia. Rain will taper off later morning on Thursday. The morning will be mild with numbers in the low 50s and by the afternoon with the help of some sunshine returning, temps will push back into the low to mid 60s. It may be a bit breezy as well with gusts out of the north up to 25 mph. More sunshine to end the work week as another high pressure system moves in. Expect temps to be in the low to mid 30s for Friday and highs to be around 60°. Freezing by Saturday morning but afternoon temps will be near 70°. Milder still for Sunday where overnight temps will be in the 40s and highs will be in the low 70s. A few showers possible heading back to work with mild air remaining.
