After a fleeting mid-week warm-up, North Florida will get another blast of winter over the weekend.
A cold front moving through the area Thursday night and Friday will bring high rain chances both days followed by freezing low temperatures. It's part of the same weather system that could bring snow and ice to parts of the Deep South.
But there will be no freezing rain, nor sleet, nor snow, said Kristian Oliver, meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Tallahassee. By the time the coldest air arrives, the rain will be long gone.
"Our Florida area may be just a bit too warm for any freezing precipitation," Oliver said.

The forecast calls for Tallahassee's low to dip around freezing Saturday night and Sunday night, though inland parts of the western Panhandle could see more frigid temperatures, with lows in the mid to upper 20s.
The high is forecast for only 47 Saturday in Tallahassee, bouncing back to the low and mid-50s Sunday and Monday. The normal high for this time of year is 64, the normal low 40.
"Sunday morning will probably be our coldest," Oliver said, "and it will gradually warm up after that."
