High pressure south of the area, and a stationary front draped across the middle part of the country will continue to keep our weather warm and muggy. With the onshore flow of warm air moving over relatively colder waters in the Gulf of Mexico, fog will be an issue during the morning hours. This will be enhanced in areas closer to the coast.

This pattern is expected to hold through the weekend. Farther inland, low clouds will be the issue during the early parts of the day. As the daytime heating kicks in during the afternoon, winds will increase and clouds will gradually break up. Therefore, you can expect a mix of sun and clouds during the afternoon hours. The sun will be warming our temperatures into the upper 70s and lower 80s for the next several days.

Rain chances should be at a minimum today and tomorrow, perhaps a couple of showers developing during the afternoon into Saturday and Sunday. The pattern is expected to shift a bit early next week, bringing the frontal boundary closer to the area by Tuesday and Wednesday. Rain chances will increase then.

Otherwise, spring like weather is expected to hold on for this last official week of winter. Spring officially begins next Thursday!
