A Slow Warm Up is Upon Us
Tonight and Tomorrow: Mostly clear skies tonight, as the chill continues. Temperatures will be dropping into the 40s around 10 PM, on their way to an overnight low of 42° and calm winds. Mostly sunny conditions on Monday, as a light wind out of the east will allow for slightly warmer temperatures. They will be warming quickly into the 50s around 9 AM and 60s around 10 AM. Highs will peak near 69°.
Up Next: Dry and pleasant conditions persist into the beginning half of the workweek, as high temperatures briefly become above average during the midweek. A cooler and wetter weather pattern will move in to wrap up the week.
The National Hurricane Center is not anticipating any tropical development within the next 5 days.
The upper ridge axis will remain from the northwest gulf through Tuesday. This allows for a northeast to east flow to remain over our area, keeping dry air in the vicinity and dewpoints below 50° through Tuesday. Nice weather should continue through Wednesday, as an inverted trough will keep a northeast component to surface winds. Moisture will slowly increase over the coastal waters Tuesday, then more inland beginning Wednesday. The next system will approach Thursday and Friday, creating more of a southerly flow which will push ample moisture onshore both along and ahead of the frontal system. Instability should stay rather limited, with only a slight chance of an isolated storm north of I-10. Dry conditions will return by noon on Friday.
