Morning temperatures started out in the mid 70s. Some cloud cover over portions of southern Georgia kept early morning temperatures in the mid to upper 70s before sunrise. The entire region will continue to warm up into the afternoon and high temperatures will peak in the lower 90s. A cold front draped throughout the southeastern United States will slowly push south into our viewing area. There will be a 60% chance of seeing scattered afternoon showers and storms. Southern Georgia will have the best chance of seeing the rainfall associated with the frontal system. For most of north Florida, winds from the southwest will push moisture from the Gulf onshore, bringing rainfall this afternoon and evening. Though the rain chances are high, today should not be a washout, but be sure to have your umbrella on hand in case you run into a scattered shower. The cold front will become stationary for the remainder of the week and will cause rain chances to bump up into the 40-50% range for the next seven days. Increased cloud cover from the rain will keep our afternoon high temperatures in the lower 90s for the rest of the week.
