From the TV 5 Forecast Center:
High pressure will be located to our east today. Southerly winds on the backside of the departing high will bring warm and slightly more humid air into the region today. A cold front will also be approaching the area as the day progresses. We’ll start out with mostly sunny skies in most locales this morning followed by increasing clouds as the front gets closer. Coastal areas will see some patchy dense fog this morning. The fog is expected to burn off and give way to some sunshine before clouds begin to increase. We may see a few showers and possibly a thunderstorm over western and northwestern areas later in the day otherwise most cities/towns will see a dry day. Temperatures will be in the low to mid-70s along the coast due to an onshore wind while inland areas top off in the upper 70s to mid-80s. The cold front will move into the state tonight giving us a chance for some scattered showers and thunderstorms during the nighttime hours. Lows will remain very mild tonight with temperatures staying in the 60s.
The cold front will continue to move through the state early Wednesday and out of the area by afternoon. We’ll see a chance for some scattered showers and thunderstorms during the morning and maybe early afternoon followed by clearing skies during the afternoon as the front moves away. Wednesday’s highs will range from the mid-70s to low 80s. High pressure will build into the region behind the departing cold front bringing sunshine and pleasant weather back to the area for Thursday. High temperatures will top off in the 70s to low 80s. Friday looks good with partly to mostly sunny skies and highs near or a little above 80°. Humidity returns to the area to start the weekend Saturday.
