Our front has moved toward the coast, but the more comfortable air has only moved in across our northern sections where dew points have dropped back into the 60s. From I-10 southward toward the coast, it's going to take a little time for the drier air to get here. It looks like humidity levels will continue to drop off during the morning and early afternoon hours. There are a few showers still hanging on along the coast near the front, those will continue to move offshore today.
Sunshine is planned for your Wednesday and Thursday. Temperatures will still climb back into the low 90s, but as the humidity levels drop, the comfort level rises. Dry air cools off easier at night, so most of the area along and north of I-10 will drop into the 60s tonight, with temps near 70 along the coast. This dry air will remain in place through Thursday with more summer like conditions returning for the weekend.
The tropical wave over the eastern Atlantic has nearly dissipated this morning and no other areas of tropical weather are a concern, so we're not expecting any tropical depressions or storms to develop over the next several days.
