MIDWAY, Fla. (WTXL) -- From the Storm Team Weather Center ...

The dry air mass is draped over most of the region late today, and its impacts are seen in the form of abundant sunshine, and felt in the form of less stickiness and a little more comfort despite continued hot temperatures.  With light winds, turning calm at times, and the ongoing presence of the drier air, readings after sunset will steadily fall to below-average levels for your Thursday morning.  Lows will reach the low 60s in outlying, rural zones in southwest Georgia, mid 60s in general for interior areas, and upper 60s along the coast and in the southeast Big Bend.  Heat ramps up tomorrow as moisture clinging to the Atlantic coast attempts to move westward.  Rain chances remain near zero near the Apalachicola River, to about 20% of the Suwannee River valley, as highs reach the mid 90s.  The weekend weather pattern will feature a gradual increase in rain opportunities for the region, but may also be impacted early next week by the circulation around now-Tropical Storm Erika as it may make a move toward the east side of the Florida peninsula.
