The cold front that has been discussed for the last several days has finally moved through the viewing area. Rain and cloudy conditions associated with the front has mostly cleared the Gulf Coast, but a pop-up shower this afternoon cannot be ruled out.
A cooler and drier air mass has moved in. Daytime high temperatures will finally fail to break any records today with highs in the lower to mid 80s, close to what we would normally feel this time of the year. The cold front’s effects will be most notable in the early morning hours when low temps drop to the upper 60s.
Wednesday should be similar to today; however temps rise back into the upper 80s as a weak upper level ridge of high pressure passes overhead. As this high pressure slides farther east, wind will likely come out of the south. This will increase onshore moisture flow from the Gulf and bring higher humidity levels and a slight chance for rain.
Friday into Saturday, models indicate another, stronger cold front will move through Saturday evening into Sunday morning. High temperatures are expected to drop into the lower 70s for the beginning of next week with overnight lows in the upper 50s or lower 60s.
