TALLAHASSEE, FL (WTXL) -- An upper level trough sitting over the Northeast has been slowly digging southward this week. This, along with a weakening upper level ridge, has caused rain chances to steadily increase. Over the next few days, this upper level tough will be sitting over our region. Rain and thunderstorms will remain scattered through the start of next week.

Tonight, overnight lows will fall to the lower and mid 70s with a calm wind. Rain chances drop off after sunset allowing for most of us to remain dry. 

Friday is shaping up to be a partly to mostly cloudy day with a 50 percent chance of rain and thunderstorms in the afternoon. Any storms that develop should not be severe, though some may be stronger or produce heavier rain. Friday's highs reach the lower 90s, but the humidity may make it feel several degrees warmer. Winds continue to come out of the west at about 5 to 10 mph. Friday night will be similar to tonight with decreasing rain chances and lows near 74 degrees.
