TODAY: Mostly sunny with a few coastal clouds. Still breezy along the coast. North and Inland: 62-64, South and Beach: 64-66, Winds: N 10-15 mph.
TOMORROW: Partly sunny for most of the day with mostly cloudy skies towards mid-afternoon. There is a slight chance for an evening shower. Still breezy along the coast. Inland: 62-64, Beach: 64-66, Winds: N 10-15 mph.
SATURDAY: Cloudy with rain showers likely. Temps holding in the low to mid 60’s.
MARINE: There is a Small Craft Advisory in effect through this evening.
DISCUSSION: A strong area of high pressure continues to wedge in from the north. This has helped calm winds inland this morning allowing temperatures to drop into the mid 30’s. Towards the beach, winds are still breezy around 15 mph, this has kept the atmosphere well mixed and temps in the low 40’s. Today winds will continue to be breezy at the coast as high pressure holds over us. Our atmosphere is very dry but we still could see a few low clouds build in around our coastal locations today.
Friday we start to see the effects of a storm system that should sweep to our south. This system looks to form in the Gulf of Mexico by this afternoon and begin to track across Florida and move up the coast. Because of this, we should expect to see skies become mostly cloudy by late Friday with only a slight chance for showers Friday night. Then increased rain chances overnight Friday and widespread rain likely on Saturday.
It appears this coastal low should move out of reach of us by Sunday, however this could change as the track of the low becomes more defined.
We will return back to the low to mid 70’s with a majority of sunshine next week.
