TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) -- The warm stretch of weather continues through the Big Bend and South Georgia. Afternoon temperatures are in the mid 70s through much of the local area.
Some clouds are visible on satellite imagery, but not enough to have an impact on our temperatures. Winds are light and should remain that way for the rest of the day.
Much of the southeastern U.S. will be a in a rather quiet weather pattern with low rain chances.
Not much change in the weather pattern through the end of the workweek. High pressure to our east will continue to influence our local weather through Friday. pic.twitter.com/tayQrVUCcS— Brittany Bedi (@BrittanyBedi) February 5, 2019
High pressure will be over the eastern Florida peninsula through Thursday. This will bring winds from the south, leading to warm and generally rain-free conditions. High temperatures will be in the mid to upper 70s on Wednesday and Thursday. The cooler spots may be at the coast, since water temperatures are in the mid 50s.
Early morning lows on Wednesday and Thursday will be in the mid 50s, still warmer than average for this time of year. However, some areas of fog are possible around sunrise. This could reduce visibility to a half-mile or less each morning. It would be a good idea to plan some extra time if traveling between 5AM and 9AM.
A weak cold front approaches the Big Bend and South Georgia on Friday and into the weekend. A small line of showers moves into the area of Friday and Saturday. Rain coverage will be small, with only about a 20% chance of rain on Friday and Saturday.
Cooler and drier air follow up the front over the weekend. This will limit high temperatures to the upper 60s and low 70s for Saturday and Sunday. High pressure will be in place this weekend, so rain chances are not zero, but low.
Another cold weak cold front approaches North Florida and South Georgia on Tuesday next week.
