Warming up next week


What a beautiful end to the weekend! Skies have cleared out and our temperatures were comfortable this afternoon. Most locations hit the upper 60s, low 70s. So, still a bit colder for average this time of year. Typically, our afternoon highs are in the upper 70s. It was a bit breezy today. But, for tonight the winds will die down a bit. 

TONIGHT: It’ll be cool tonight with overnight lows falling to the upper 40s, low 50s. Patchy fog will be possible early tomorrow. Winds will be out of the north at 5 miles per hour. Clear conditions and no rain tonight. 

MONDAY: High pressure builds across the region. High pressure means sinking in the atmosphere which keeps clouds from forming. Expect clear skies tomorrow. And our temperatures will be getting warmer. It’ll be in the upper 70s, low 80s tomorrow afternoon. 

REST OF THE WEEK: The ridge of high pressure will move eastward. Clockwise flow around the high means our winds will be out of the south. Warm, humid air off the Gulf of Mexico will help our temperatures to rise. We will be in the mid 80s by midweek. It’ll also be noticeably more humid on Wednesday. 

High pressure will keep rain out of the forecast for the majority of the week. However, by Thursday, a cold front will move through the area. This will bring us showers and isolated thunderstorms. For now, it does not look like severe weather will be an issue. Temperatures will be cooler on Friday, behind the cold front. It’ll be in the low 70s on Friday afternoon. Rain is likely back in the forecast for Sunday.
