Weather forecast for Charles’ Pinpoint – Sunday, February 6

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) – Many in Big Bend and South Georgia woke up Sunday to clouds with temperatures ranging in the 30s in southwestern Georgia and parts of Western Big Bend to the upper 40s near I-75. Clouds lingered for much of the night in eastern areas, helping to keep temperatures a little warmer than other locations.

Observations aloft on Sunday morning showed a stronger wind jet (a jet contrail) in the upper levels of the atmosphere with a weak trough of low pressure in the middle levels. These features are likely to aid in the development of a surface low off the east coast of Florida during the day. Clouds are likely to remain for most of the day with a better chance of showers than Saturday. Most short-range models retain the highest chance of rain the farther east you move, but the chance of rain will be 40% overall for the viewing area. Highs will be a few degrees warmer than Saturday with highs ranging from the mid 50s to near 60s.

Chances of rain will decrease overnight, but cloud cover will likely remain with lows in the 40s Sunday evening, but another upper-level disturbance will move across the eastern United States Sunday into Monday. This pattern will bring another chance of showers beginning as early as Monday afternoon with increasing chances of rain Monday evening through Tuesday morning. After the rain has left, clear skies are expected for the remainder of Tuesday with highs in the 60s.

Calm weather is forecast for the remainder of the work week and into next Saturday. Wednesday and Thursday morning lows will be a little below average with Wednesday morning being the coldest in the central inland. Temperatures will be moderate to near average for the rest of the week with sunny to mostly sunny skies.
