THURSDAY: High pressure will begin to move farther east of the region – temperatures will begin to creep a little higher. Humidity levels remain low and breezes will pick up through the day – fire danger could be elevated. Otherwise, it’s all sunshine and seasonable temperatures – from the morning 30s and 40s, to the afternoon upper 60s and lower 70s once again.
FRIDAY: With high pressure settling east of the region, flow off the Gulf of Mexico will allow for temperatures to gradually trend warmer. Morning 40s to near 50 will sneak into the middle 70s by the afternoon hours, more akin to late October than mid-late November. Amid clear skies, we’ll drop into the upper 40s and lower 50s by early Saturday.
EXTENDED FORECAST: The weekend features, mainly, quiet weather – sunshine prevailing through Saturday as temperatures work their way into the middle 70s by the afternoon hours. Clouds will gradually sneak back into the skies through Sunday ahead of our next weather maker – a cold front, due into the region late Sunday night into early Monday. We’ll trend cooler to start off the new week before our next system – a stronger front, moves in late Tuesday into early Wednesday.
