A short wave trough and an attendant weak surface low over Louisiana early this morning will slide east across the northern Gulf coast the remainder of today, then across the north central Florida peninsula tonight, then exit east into the Atlantic early on Thursday. Increasing moisture and lift associated with these features will lead to increasing cloudiness across the forecast area the remainder of today with shower chances also increasing by late in the afternoon, with the highest rain chances (probability of precipitation 50-60%) expected during tonight as this system moves across the area. Temperatures today will be near seasonal norms with highs climbing into the upper 60s north, and lower to mid 70s central and south. Current forecast is on track with no changes required at this time.
An area of low pressure approaching from the west and surface high pressure exiting to the east will support southeast to south winds around 10 knots with seas of 2 feet or less over the Gulf waters the remainder of today with a southwest wind flow component developing near shore during the afternoon. As the low approaches shower chances will increase across the north-central waters during mid to late afternoon with the showers then spreading south and east across the remainder of the waters tonight as the low moves across the region. In the wake of low northwest to north winds in the 10 to 15 knot range can be expected late tonight becoming northeast on Thursday as high pressure briefly builds in through early Friday. Ongoing forecast is in good shape with no changes expected in the mid morning update around 10 AM.
