TALLAHASSEE (WTXL) - The heat returns in full force today as drier conditions filter into the region. The frontal system that was draped over our area the last several days has since fizzled away and a weak ridge of high pressure is setting up for a few days allowing for a general drying trend with only a few heat-induced thunderstorms expected in the afternoon. Fuller sunshine will bump the temps up into the low 90s once again today after starting off mild in the low 70s this morning. We're also seeing some leftover moisture from Tuesday's storms allowing for some fog early this morning. Heading into the end of the work week, temps creep back into the mid 90s courtesy of the high angle of the mid-September sun and less rainfall. By Saturday through the rest of the forecast period, a front that will dig all the way into the Deep South will allow the rest of the nation to get their first real taste of fall. Meanwhile for us, we're expected to see plenty more rainfall with elevated storm chances in the afternoon and evening. Temps drop off into the low 90s through the weekend and won't get out of the upper 80s range early next week as we get socked in with the moisture.
