TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) -- It was a foggy start to the workweek. Warmer-than-average temperatures are in place over much of the Big Bend and South Georgia.
Temperatures at 2PM were in the mid 60s in the northernmost counties of our viewing area, with mid 70s into most of North Florida. Clouds in some of our northern counties are keeping temperatures cool. The cloud cover is starting to clear for coastal Big Bend counties.

Afternoon high temperatures will vary based on location. North Florida will likely have highs in the mid to upper 70s, along with the South Georgia border counties. Highs will be in the mid to upper 60s farther north, closer to Dougherty, Worth, Colquitt, Mitchell, and Baker counties.
Rain chances for Monday are low. Expect a 30% chance of a few showers. A cold front will approach on Tuesday. Local winds will take a southerly turn ahead of it on Monday. The southerly flow will bring additional moisture into the region. This increases dewpoints and could lead to some fog overnight into Tuesday morning.
The main line of rain associated with the approaching cold front moves in on Tuesday. So far, it looks like the main line of rain will enter the western edge of our area Tuesday afternoon, and push eastward through the evening. Most rain should be over for our local area on Wednesday morning.
After the cold front passes, some cooler weather will follow on Wednesday and Thursday. High temperatures will be in the upper 60s. High pressure will push eastward from Texas to over the Southeastern U.S.

The slightly cooler feel will be short-lived. Another cold front approaches on Friday. It will increase rain chances on Friday and possibly Saturday. The exact timing still needs to be pinned down. However, another push of slightly cooler and drier air will follow into the weekend. Highs will be in the upper 60s to low 70s on Saturday and Sunday with plenty of sunshine.
