Today we head somewhere MUCH warmer than it’s been around here in the Midwest. The Florida Panhandle can’t possibly be below zero right? RIGHT?!?!
At 953pm EST, the temperature at Tallahassee, FL was 50 degrees under overcast skies. As strong Arctic high pressure grips the Midwest/Great Lakes region, it extends pretty much over the entire eastern half of the US. However, there is the tail end of a boundary that’s lingering over Northern Florida, kicking up a few rain showers in the process. These aren’t terribly heavy, but they will affect the area overnight and flare up again late Thursday afternoon. As the high pressure builds further south and shifts east a bit, the main ridge axis of it will shift through the area, helping to clear out conditions as we head into the weekend. Tallahassee won’t see anywhere close to the low temperatures we’re seeing currently, but a high temp in the low 50s is still a bit brisk for those dwelling near the Gulf Coast.
