  • High pressure in control for now
  • We continue to warm across the region
  • Stubborn system returns this weekend

After a gorgeous afternoon, we’ll keep the clear skies around into the night with cooling temperatures in to the mid 40s. No worries with any type of frost or freeze overnight.

An upper ridge moves in Wednesday from the Gulf of Mexico. This means temperatures will moderate back up near seasonable in the mid-upper 70s and low 80s. We hold onto these temperatures through Thursday along with the sunshine.

Our temperatures climb into the mid to upper 70s by midweek.

WEEKEND OUTLOOK

The low pressure system that brought stronger storms and rain last weekend has been stuck spinning off the coast this week. We expect this system to linger offshore for a few more days before eventually heading westward toward our area. This will bring back a chance of rain as early Friday. afternoon. Rain should letup Friday night before moving back in Saturday. With increased humidity around, the any rain should be decent soakers.

The final push of rain will develop into Sunday but it’s not looking as wet as Saturday. Warmer afternoon temperatures may also mean a few storms are possible.

A coastal low will enter from the west, bringing a rainy start to the weekend.
