The weather through the weekend will remain relatively unchanged. Skies will be partly to mostly cloudy with areas of fog during the morning hours. Temperatures will be in the 70s through this weekend during the day and in the 50s to around 60 at night. A strong cold front will bring a decent chance of rain by Monday, followed by MUCH cooler temperatures for the middle of next week.
TONIGHT - FRIDAY:
Skies tonight will be partly to mostly cloudy. Areas of fog will develop during the morning. Lows tonight will fall into the 50s to around 60 with highs in the 70s for Friday under partly to mostly cloudy skies. A stray shower will be possible, but rain chances will likely remain at or below 20% through the period.
Expect more of the same. Saturday and Sunday will be warm, with highs well into the 70s. Overnight temperatures will drop to around 60. A stray shower is possible again late Sunday, but nothing extraordinary. Areas of fog will be possible early in the morning.
A strong cold front will move through the area bringing the much advertised changes to the Gulf Coast. The day will begin with clouds and relatively mild weather but as the day progresses showers and storms will move in, followed by breezy and cooler weather Monday evening and night. High temperatures will depend on how early in the day the front passes. Areas that are most likely to rise well into the 70s will be places east of I-65, particularly northwest Florida. Once the front passes, temperatures will fall into the 50s, then 40s by Monday night.
TUESDAY - WEDNESDAY - THURSDAY:
The front will clear the area by Tuesday morning. bringing dry weather and sunshine back to the Gulf Coast. Highs on Tuesday will barely reach 60 in most areas and with a stiff northwest wind, it will feel cooler than it actually is. Lows Tuesday night will fall into the 30s, with freezing temperatures possible IF winds die down and skies remain clear. Wednesday will see lighter winds and highs around 60 with plenty of sunshine. By Thursday, clouds will increase as low pressure develops off the Texas coast and tracks eastward. This gulf low will bring our next chance of rain as early as late Thursday, but certainly by Friday, possibly lasting into the weekend.
