After several gray days with significant rainfall and thunderstorms, Tuesday will start the changeover to pleasant weather. As skies are clearing aloft, the low level moisture will create some lower cloudiness and fog during the early part of the day. Dry air will finally filter in to gradually clear the skies. Expect sunshine and much warmer conditions.  Highs will climb into the mid 80s for highs. Breezes out of the north will keep the humidity low.

More of the same is expected into the mid week. After clear skies and temperatures near 60 degrees overnight, Wednesday will be sunny with highs in the low to mid 80s. Thursday should be mostly sunny with similar temperatures. A system passing north of the area will help to swing a cool front into the Gulf waters Thursday, but because of limited moisture, we shouldn’t see any rain.


The front will settle in the Gulf waters Friday, then lift northward again Friday night. This will increase clouds for the early part of the weekend. Moisture will roll inland by Saturday with chances for rain returning. Showers and storms are likely Saturday with rainfall amounts forecast to be around 1-2 inches. Sunday, expect cloudiness and widely scattered showers. Highs over the weekend will stay in the mid to upper 70s.
