SLOW WARMING:  Today, the cool pocket of air aloft keeps clouds in the forecast with some breaks for sunshine.  A wave of energy swings toward us, which could fire a few showers later in the day.  Highs warm a tad to the upper 70s; still below average.  Tonight, we dip to near 60°.


Thursday looks to be a near repeat performance.  We expect thighs a tad warmer – into the low 80s.  A few showers or storms may fire in the day.  Friday, we move toward the middle 80s.  We increase some clouds and the rain chances bump up just a bit too, especially toward evening.  Showers continue overnight.


WEEKEND:  A rich flow of gulf moisture kicks in for the weekend.  This will bring added clouds to our forecast for Saturday and Sunday.  A wave of energy swing through on Saturday, bumping against a stationary front off the coast.  This helps to fire showers and storms later Saturday into Sunday.  Highs Saturday and Sunday are only near 80° with the rain.  Sunday, we keep the chance for some showers and storms.


NEXT WEEK:  The system slowly moves east, lingering clouds and a few showers into Monday.  Highs bump to the middle 80s though.  We’re clearing a bit more with middle to upper 80s for Tuesday.

Make it a wonderful Wednesday.
