TALLAHASSEE (WTXL) - Freeze warnings in place this morning for the entire region, even right along the immediate coast. Temps are plunging into the mid to upper 20s. Plenty of sunshine later today with high pressure overhead allowing for temps to jump fast to right around 60° for a high. Overnight, freeze watches are in effect, as it looks like we'll see a third night with near-freezing temps. A similar trend for the rest of Wednesday with temps getting to the low 60s. Milder air to round out the work week with mid 30s overnight to mid 60s in the afternoon on Thursday as winds shift from the Gulf of Mexico ushering in more warmth and moisture. That'll allow for an upper-level system to approach the region overnight into Friday allowing for scattered showers and storms throughout the day. Upper 60s can be expected in the afternoon. Saturday looks quiet and mild with highs in the mid 60s. A couple showers are possible as another, weaker system moves in on Sunday with temps cooling off to the 50s. For Martin Luther King Jr. Day, it'll be cooler still waking up near freezing and only topping off around 60°.
