TALLAHASSEE (WTXL) - We're returning to more of a typical summer-like pattern with temps superseding the 90° mark every day in the forecast period and rain chances remaining more spotty in coverage rather than experiencing widespread rainfall.

Today, winds turn out of the west southwest ushering in a hotter air mass as high pressure builds in over the Gulf of Mexico allowing temps to make it into the mid 90s by the afternoon.  All this heating and a sea breeze front could spark a few thunderstorms that are scattered in nature, but I think most of the activity will be confined to our Florida counties.  That's not to say one or two storms can't fire off in south Georgia, but they will be very isolated.  

By tonight, temps stay mild and muggy in the low 70s. An advancing cold front will allow for more showers and storms on Thursday and Friday, but I think the rain holds off til the afternoon allowing temps to still warm into the low to mid 90s.  For the weekend, it looks a little drier as the front fizzles out and high pressure returns, so only expect some sea breeze-induced storminess with temps remaining in the mid to even upper 90s.
