We started Tuesday on the cold side of the pillow, no doubt about that; lows were in the 40s. Tallahassee shattered our old record low of 47°, the airport officially dropped to 44°. High pressure, dry air and a strong May sun angle will lead to a huge warm up, highs this afternoon will push into the low 80s. Pleasant weather continues tomorrow as high pressure shifts slightly east of us; highs Wednesday will be in the upper 80s after starting around 50° in the morning. Thursday through the weekend we get hotter as an upper level ridge of high pressure sinks air over us. When air sinks, it compresses and warms; by Sunday some may touch 90°. While all this happens we get a bit muggier each day as our winds turn more from the south. It won't oppressively humid but certainly enough to make you sweat a little more. The combination of heat, humidity and a weak disturbance passing by will spark isolated showers or storms Friday through Monday. I wouldn't cancel plans over this but keep in mind you may have to dodge a few rain drops by the weekend.

Be safe and have a great Tuesday!
