TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) -- The weather has been pretty nice the last few days after dealing with weeks of above-average temperatures from Tallahassee to Hawkins, Ind.* But some changes will be coming to the forecast this weekend, though it will not be quite upside-down weather. Still, grab your blankets, fire up the Nexflix app, and brace yourself for the pumpkin-flavored cooler weather we could experience late this weekend into early next week.
Friday night will be nice for Friday night football and the FSU game against Boston College. Temperatures will likely be in the lower to mid 60s around 8 pm with a southeast to southerly breeze. Temperatures will be near 60 by 11 pm (not "Eleven"). Rain chances will be very low. The Saturday morning low will be in the mid to upper 50s.
Rain chances will spike Saturday as the front nears. Moisture, warm air advection, with some lift will aid in bringing up the odds of rain. Rain chances will be near 70 percent with highs in the upper 70s and mostly cloudy skies.
The front will pass through our area Saturday evening into the night, bringing in that wind direction change along with drier air. Skies will eventually clear behind the front early Sunday morning. The morning low will be upper 40s to near 50. Rain chances will be near 30 percent, but the best odds will be Saturday evening.
Sunday will be much cooler with a bit of a northerly breeze. Wind speeds will be between 10 to 15 mph, with the high in the mid 60s.
Sunday night will be pretty chilly as high pressure to the west will continue to funnel in drier and cooler weather. Lows could get into the upper 30s with clear skies.
So, the weekend will start off a bit damp, but it will feel like fall once we get to Sunday. Enjoy it!
