TALLAHASSEE (WTXL) - The drying and cooling trend begins today. Expect plenty of sunshine throughout the day and the next several, but as high pressure builds in, our temps will drop. Temps today start off near the freezing mark with some light frost expected. Highs will climb to the mid to upper 50s with the winds increasing heading into the afternoon. A polar front moves through late in the day that will seriously drop our temps--even colder than we saw last week. Hard freeze warnings are in effect tonight through tomorrow morning with numbers dipping into the mid 20s. To add insult to injury, we're going to see gusts up to 25 mph in the morning dropping the wind chills into the teens. Highs Thursday afternoon will be chilly only getting into the mid to upper 40s. Colder still on Friday morning as the Arctic-based high builds in with temps dipping to near 20°. Hard freeze watches are in place in anticipation of this multi-day cold snap. Friday afternoon looks a little milder with temps getting into the mid 50s. The weekend looks rather pleasant with temps only dipping to the mid 30s overnight. By the afternoon, upper 60s are expected and mid 70s by Sunday afternoon. A few isolated showers are possible late in the day before a mild start to next week.
