TALLAHASSEE, FL (WTXL) -- Temperatures on Monday morning will be the coldest we've felt since April. Under mostly sunny skies, afternoon highs will reach the lower and mid 70's again on Monday. 

The cold front that passed over the region this weekend is expected to stall out over South Florida on Monday. As it does so, a disturbance looks like it's going to form off the boundary near the Texas coast. By Monday night, the local area will see more clouds pushing in from the wave near Texas. Overnight lows won't fall quite as low because of that. However, overnight temperatures will still cool to the upper 50's and low 60's.

The aforementioned disturbance starts parading east across the Gulf of Mexico at the start of our work week. With moisture pushing into the local area, rain chances increase on Tuesday. The brunt of rain from this system likely won't reach the local area until Thursday and Friday as it passes over the Florida Peninsula. By the weekend, the wet weather should clear out. Afternoon highs range from lower to mid 70's through the extended forecast with overnight lows falling to the low 60's.
