A high pressure system will be drifting south over the Gulf of Mexico today. With sinking air and a clockwise flow around this feature, the result for our weather will be clear skies and a westerly winds. The deviation from having a northerly component to our wind will mean some appreciable warming can occur and temperatures will pump it up to near 70° Monday afternoon.
The next cold front will swing in tonight. Thus, this cold front will be capable of little more than some clouds and a shower or two. The front should be fully out of here by Tuesday Afternoon. Behind this front, we'll again get that cooling northwest breeze and that will mean little room for a warm up on Tuesday Afternoon. Expect only about a ten degree spread in temperatures with lows in the middle 40s and highs in the middle 50s. Behind this front, a bit more significant of a cold pop is expected. Wednesday will be our coolest day in about two weeks with a morning temperature in the upper 20s and a high struggling to eclipse 50°.
