SYNOPSIS – While the heat and drier air were felt by most of the Wiregrass this afternoon, a few showers and thunderstorms were able to sneak into the easternmost counties, providing brief breaks from temperatures in the lower 90s. Remaining rain and clouds will fade quickly after sunset, making way for mostly clear conditions tonight. Creeping pockets of moisture from the South and East can produce isolated showers throughout the region tomorrow and in the days after. Better rain coverage will likely return mid-week as a frontal boundary dives south through our area. Early sunshine will raise temperatures to the lower and middle 90s each afternoon.

TONIGHT – Mostly clear. Low near 70°. Winds light S-SE.

TOMORROW – Partly cloudy, slight rain chance. High near 93°. Winds E-SE at 5 mph.

TOMORROW NIGHT – Mostly clear. Low near 71°. Winds light E-SE.
