TALLAHASSEE (WTXL) - Another cool wet day expected, but the timing of the showers, and even a few embedded thunderstorms, is flip-flopped compared to what we saw Tuesday. The morning looks relatively dry with a few scattered showers expected. The bulk of the wet weather moves in during the afternoon and sticks around til around midnight. The core of the low pressure system will drape right over the region bringing some heavy rain amounts. 1 to 3" of new rainfall is expected through early Thursday. A few thunderstorms are possible in this system, especially along the coastline, and even a few elevated wind gusts may be seen, but nothing widespread is expected. This is because temps are still a bit cool to see thunderheads boiling up too high. Temps will only climb to near 60° this afternoon. Tonight on the backside of this system, we'll cool off to the mid to upper 40s. Another cool day tomorrow, though we'll see plenty more sunshine. Temps climb to the low 60s. High pressure builds in for the end of the work week causing overnight lows to dip to the upper 30s by Friday morning. It'll be a bit breezy with gusts up to 20 mph expected. This will knock the wind chill, or feels-like temps down to the low and mid 30s. Highs are still cool for Friday and Saturday only in the mid 60s as flow continues to come from the northeast. By Sunday though, winds shift off the Gulf, ushering in the possibility of a few sparse showers, and also ushering in the warmth. Temps will get to around 70° for a high and mid and upper 70s are expected early next week.
