TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) — It was another balmy morning in the viewing area on Monday with temperatures around or more than 20 degrees above the normal morning low.

Highs will be near 80s with lows in the 60s. Best chance of rain Thursday at 40%. Enough convective energy will be in place starting Wednesday to bring thunderstorms, with stronger thunderstorms possible in southwest Georgia on Thursday.

New Years Day will remain balmy with only a slight chance of showers, but that could change for the second day of 2022. Guidance patterns continue to bring a large-scale trough of low pressure aloft and dig into the southern plains on Saturday and help push an area of ​​low pressure and a cold front into the eastern United States. The chance of rain, as of this update, was 50% for Sunday with a chance of thunderstorms. Highs will be in the lower 80s on Saturday but will be a few degrees cooler on Sunday.

As the cold front passes – sometimes Sunday or Sunday evening – colder, drier air is expected to move into the region. Monday morning lows could reach the 40s with highs near 60s under mostly sunny to sunny skies.
