TALLAHASSEE (WTXL) - A gloomy day ahead, but don't expect it to rain consistently. A cold front pushes through this morning move most of the rain to our eastern counties by late morning. A secondary push of a newly-formed low pressure system in the Gulf of Mexico will advance along that cold front and bring elevated rain chances around dinner time especially the farther east you go. As for those temps, because the front moves through early in the day, expect numbers to tumble heading into the afternoon. Mid to upper 60s this morning with temps plummeting by the afternoon into the low to mid 50s. Overnight, expect the mercury to continue to fall down towards the freezing mark. Wednesday looks dry but cooler with temps only getting into the upper 50s nearing 60° for a high. Plenty of sunshine persists for the rest of the work week, but an Arctic-based high pressure system settles into the region dropping our temps to even colder levels than we saw last week. In fact, this will be the coldest air since early January when we had our last significant Arctic-air outbreak. Lows by Thursday morning will be in the mid to upper 20s with wind chills, or how it feels temps, dipping into the teens. Highs Thursday afternoon look cold as well only getting into the upper 40s. Friday morning looks colder still with temps plunging into the low 20s, but at least the winds will ease up. Highs start to rebound into the upper 50s by the afternoon. The weekend looks pleasant getting into the upper 60s Saturday and mid 70s by Sunday. More rain is possible early next work week.
