TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) – It was cold Thursday morning. And some thought it was just… disrespectful.

So far, the Thursday morning low at Tallahassee International Airport was 41 degrees. The morning low would have been warmer if it wasn’t for the wind – which didn’t help make it feel warmer as the wind chills were in the 30s. But slightly warmer temps and higher rain chances are coming this weekend. Fun timing, right?

Friday will start off with a morning low in the lower to mid 30s for many. The wind is expected to be lighter to calm, which will allow the low temperature to be lower than Thursday morning. Any plants that are susceptible to damage in near-freezing temperatures should be covered or moved inside.

The daytime will be mostly sunny, but we could see some more cloud cover enter our area by the end of the day. It will still be nice with highs in the 60s.

We’ll begin to see changes Saturday as a an upper-level trough and accompanying surface low and cold front will move eastward into Arkansas and Louisiana Saturday morning. Cloud cover will increase across our area with rain chances creeping up. The odds of rain will be near 40 percent with highs in the upper 60s to near 70. The morning low will be warmer – the mid to upper 40s.

The highest rain chances will be on Sunday as the front approaches and then pass our area. Rain totals are not expected to be stellar with many locations staying under a quarter-inch, but isolated higher amounts are possible. The morning low will be in the 50s with the highs reaching into the 70s. Overall, rain chances will be near 50 percent.

To sum it up, keep those larger coats on hand Friday morning but have the umbrella on hand over the weekend.
