TALLAHASSEE, FL (WTXL) -- Our nice and sunny days have come to an end with clouds and rain chances returning to the area. There's been a frontal boundary draped over central Florida for much of this week, but has been slowly pushing northward toward the Big Bend. This will continue through the next few days, which will increase our rain chances as we finish this work week. In addition, there is an area of low pressure in the Gulf of Mexico. This low pressure is moving toward the eastern Big Bend region and is expected to drop a few rain showers over night tonight.

Tonight, much of the area will see partly to mostly cloudy skies with lows in the lower and mid 70s. Rain chances remain fairly low for the western Big Bend and southwest Georgia. Due to the previously mentioned low pressure, the Suwannee Valley and south central Georgia will have a better chance of rain showers tonight.

Thursday, Mostly cloudy skies will persist through the day with rain chances peeking in the afternoon at 60 percent. There is a chance we could see pockets of heavier rain and hear rumbles of thunder, but at this time, storms are not expected to be severe. Daytime highs will be cooler due to the lack of sun...only warming to the mid 80s with southerly winds.

Thursday night should be fairly quiet, though cloudy, with lows in the mid 70s yet again. At this time, Friday's weather is shaping up to be similar to what we'll see on Thursday.
