Short term /today through Sunday/...
high pressure across the area will keep sunny and warming conditions
through the weekend. Increased low level moisture overnight tonight
and into Sunday morning is expected to bring some clouds through
sunrise...then clear out quickly. Temperatures will warm into the
80s by Sunday with lows generally in the low 50s. Although lows are
near normal...the influence of the high pressure will allow
temperatures to top out 5-10 degrees above normal.

Long term /Sunday night through Friday/...
middle week frontal boundary still expected to impact the County warning forecast area. Models
are beginning to show some increased surface instability with this
system. The strongest middle level support should remain just to the
north of the County warning forecast area...so have only added a slight chance of thunder
for Wednesday.

Models are progging a low pressure system to develop by late
Thursday into Friday along the old frontal boundary across the
Florida Panhandle. For now...all precipitation should remain well to the
south of the County warning forecast area...but Friday/Friday may be breezy as the low
begins to move up the southeast coast.

Temperatures will remain above normal for the first part of the week.
Normal to slightly below normal values are anticipated for the end
of the week into the weekend.
