High pressure remains the main player in our local weather through tomorrow. With that high passing to our northeast now, the clockwise flow around the high has shifted our surface winds to the southeast. The result is an onshore flow, or warmer, more humid air coming in from the Gulf of Mexico. Today will be comfortable and mild with sunshine and highs in the upper 60s. Thanks to those southerly winds, tonight won't be nearly as chilly as Wednesday Morning's lows. In fact, I expect lows to be some 15-20° warmer. Then on Thursday, sunshine and the south breezes will help our thermometers clear the 70° plateau. Enjoy the unseasonably warm and tranquil weather because changes will come beyond that.
