FORECAST:

We finally see a change in our weather patter this week as the afternoon showers and storms come to a temporary end. We are waking up to temperatures in the mid to upper 70s this morning with a light northeast breeze. The radar fairly quiet this morning with just a few showers out over the Gulf of Mexico. Today we will see plenty of sunshine with highs around 90 and we will stay dry this afternoon as drier air moves in on the northeast breeze.

Overnight we will see mostly clear skies with temperatures in the upper 60s inland to near 70 along the coast. We will continue to see dry conditions through Thursday. Friday and the upcoming weekend we will see an isolated chance of showers and thunderstorms return to the forecast. Right now that chance is around 30%.
