Weather forecast for Charles’ Pinpoint – Wednesday, December 29

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) – It was another mild Wednesday morning with low cloud and patchy fog in a few places. Temperatures ranged from high 60s to low 70s starting at 5am. Showers were found north and west of the Alabama region. Most of the rain is likely to stay away, but the chance of rain will still be there – mostly in the afternoon – at 40% to 50% with an isolated thunderstorm possible. Highs will be in the mid to high 70s with mostly cloudy skies.

The chance of rain will be 50% on Thursday as a decaying storm system is expected to approach the area. There may be just enough convective energy and wind shear to bring a very low threat of a few stronger thunderstorms with the potential for damaging wind gusts, small hail and an isolated tornado. The Storm Prediction Center added a large swath of the viewing area under a Level 1 (out of 5) severe weather hazard on Thursday. Highs will be closer to 80 inland.

Friday’s chance of rain and thunderstorms will be slightly lower with highs closer to 80 with partly to mostly cloudy skies. New Years Eve will be calm with only a slight chance of a stray shower and mild conditions.

New Years Day will be partly cloudy, but increasing cloudiness is likely late in the day as a powerful cold front approaches the eastern United States. The chance of rain and thunderstorms will increase Saturday evening through Sunday. Chances of rain on Sunday will be near 70% with lows in the 60s and highs in the lower 80s on Saturday through the upper 70s on Sunday.

After the passage of the front towards the end of Sunday, the sky should clear in the night of Sunday and Monday with colder temperatures. Guidance patterns continued to drop temperatures with each pass. Monday and Tuesday morning lows as of this update are expected to be in the mid to high 30s. Both day highs will be in the 60s.
