Assignment: Predict the 24 hr maximum temperature (deg F) for Tallahassee, FL (KTLH)

The temperature on Thursday morning in Tallahassee, Florida is down to at least 27 F, under the cool, dry air mass that they've had for several days. Friday looks like the last cool morning for awhile, as the dew point should start in the 30's and end in the 50's. This relatively dry air leads to a larger than usual spread in temperatures between the daily minimum and maximum (the diurnal range). Friday's predicted low of about 40 is less than the average minimum and the predicted high in the 70's is a little above the average high. Let's predict Friday's Tmax, which may depend on how much cloudiness develops during the day.
