With high-pressure dominating the region, a partly to mostly sunny day is ahead. The surface high pressure ridge, extending across the eastern seaboard and northern Gulf coast states, will generally remain in place the next few days. This trends towards keeping the forecast area dry in most locations, with DENSE MORNING FOG to continue. This pattern will not allow cold fronts anywhere near the area.
The chance of mostly afternoon showers and thunderstorms should return Thursday into Friday as moisture flow returns around the large high-pressure that will be in the central Gulf coast region. There may also be a well defined and slow moving easterly wave feature over the north central Gulf waters. Drier conditions should return over the weekend. Warm temperatures will continue through the period with lows in the mid-60s to low 70s and highs in the low to mid-80s.
