Near Term - Through Tonight
As of 18Z, the cold front is crossing our southeastern Big Bend zones. A couple hours of post-frontal light rain or sprinkles can be expected before skies clear this evening. Strong cold air advection will bring the coldest air mass of the season to the region. This will result in the first freeze of the season as well for locations north and west of Tallahassee. We have not added or removed any counties from the current warning. While freeze durations will be short along the southern tier of GA and the central FL Panhandle, they could be as long as 8-10 hours over Coffee County, AL. A few spots north and west of Dothan could first with the mid 20s. Winds will stay up overnight with wind chill readings by sunrise ranging from close to 20 degrees in Coffee County to mid 30s in Dixie County and around 30 in Leon County.

Short Term - Wednesday Through Thursday Night
Cold Canadian high pressure will be firmly entrenched across the eastern third of the US with northeast winds ongoing across our area Wednesday into Thursday. It will be a cold start to the day Wednesday but with plenty of sunshine and light winds, temperatures in the sun won't be so bad with readings in the 50s. In response to an upper low moving across northern Mexico, low pressure will take shape in the western Gulf and move through the northern Gulf Thursday with increasing moisture and rain chances into Thursday night. Increasing cloud cover Thursday with low level warm air advection will take highs into the mid 50s to lower 60s as rain starts Thursday afternoon into the overnight hours.

Long Term - Friday Through Tuesday
The system in the short term will be pulling away from the area but wrap around moisture and light rain will linger into the afternoon Friday over the northern half of the area. High pressure will build in for the weekend with good conditions expected. A fast moving system will bring another chance for rain to start the next work week. High temperatures will be in the 60s throughout the extended.
