TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) -- A dry stretch of weather is ahead for the new workweek.
A cold front will move through North Florida and South Georgia on Monday afternoon. Dry air is limiting rain associated with it, so rain chances remain around 10%.

Drier air will filter into the area after the front passes. Despite the cloudy start to Monday, skies will gradually clear into the afternoon. High temperatures will still remain slightly above average. Highs in inland spots will top out around the mid 70s. Winds will remain from the north and northeast around 5 to 10 mph.

A dry pattern will continue for the next several days. An area of high pressure will continue to build through the Southeast U.S. Another front will sweep through parts of the southeast on Wednesday, but it will weaken and remain to our north. Dry air partnered with the high pressure will keep rain chances low from Monday through Friday. The next chance of rain will accompany a cold front on Saturday. Even then, rain chances will likely top out at 20% to 30% on Saturday.

Temperatures for the week will be close to normal for this time of year. For reference, normal highs would be near 74 degrees, with lows in the upper 40s. By Friday, highs will be in the mid to upper 70s with a little more moisture available, leading to additional clouds.
