TALLAHASSEE (WTXL) - Another soggy set up in place with hefty showers and storms expected this afternoon. This is all courtesy of amplified wind flow from the Gulf waters which is ushering in more moisture coupled with a departing stabilizing high pressure system over the Mid-Atlantic that's shoving off the Atlantic shoreline. Temps will be kept at bay in the low 90s for highs, courtesy of the storms that'll fire up during the early afternoon through the early evening--a very similar set up to what we saw getting the kids back to school yesterday. This pattern sticks around through midweek with temps in the low to mid 90s and above average storm threat, which is good news since we're in a sizable rainfall deficit falling a foot shy of where we should be this time of year in parts of the western Big Bend and South Georgia. By this weekend though, a building high pressure system over the Gulf coast will allow for drier and hotter conditions with mid to upper 90s coming back into play and rainfall chances becoming more isolated in nature.
