Mostly sunny and warmer than the seasonal average for the next few days. Temperatures that are supposed to run into the upper 70's for this time of the year will actually exceed that average and settle into the low 80's. Warm and moist air will be drawn northward from the Gulf of Mexico the next few days so expect an increase in the afternoon humidity levels. Light winds, mostly clear sky and little rain chances through Wednesday.
The warm and moist onshore influence these next few afternoons may be the fuel for some severe weather on Thursday and Friday. A Pacific cold front is expected to traverse the United States midweek. Locally, it's arrival is expected late Thursday into Friday morning and could be marked with some potentially strong thunderstorms and damaging wind speeds. This situation will be watched closely by the Weather Edge 25 Weather Team as the timing and strength of this system will need some adjustment as we approach the end of the week.
Hurricane season is close to it's completion (November 30th), but the Deep South is entering into it's own late fall/early winter severe season. Tornadoes are not out of the ordinary as cold pacific air and warm moist gulf air clash in the form of strong winds and heavy rain.
Please review your emergency action plans with coworkers and family members. On Wednesday morning around 9:15 a.m. The National Weather Service will issue a test tornado warning message on N.O.A.A. weather radio. The test warning will only be transmitted as a test message and be displayed on your N.O.A.A. weather radio as a test message. This is a good time to make sure your N.O.A.A. weather radio is in good working conditions.
