TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) -- The heat is on, and definitely feeling like summer. Temperatures in the 90s come along with the territory in July. Rain usually is the best chance at cooling off.

Over the weekend, temperatures were limited to the 80s as showers moved in. However, rain chances will be a little lower Tuesday through Thursday. High pressure will move in across parts of the southeastern U.S. This will provide a drier pattern and winds from the north to northeast. Rain chances for Tuesday through Thursday will be around 20% to 30%. Most of the showers will be near the coast on Tuesday.

Most rain will quickly fizzle out after sunset on Tuesday. The same pattern follows on Wednesday and Thursday.
Since rain chances will be lower and rain coverage will be limited, most inland areas will reach highs in the mid 90s to upper 90s. Wednesday and Thursday will likely be the hottest days this week. Early morning low temperatures will be in the low to mid 70s.

Rain chances increase over the weekend as the next disturbance approaches and moisture builds back into North Florida and South Georgia. So far, rain chances will be around 50% for Saturday and Sunday. In turn, daytime highs will also return to the low 90s, which is normal for North Florida and South Georgia during this time of year.
