High pressure will build to the gulf coast Wednesday in the wake of Tuesday's frontal passage yielding clearing skies, dewpoints in the lower 50s and temperatures near climatological normals. Southeasterly flow becomes reestablished again Thursday as the surface high becomes centered off the Carolina coast. The warm front and some weak upper level perturbations within the broader ridging will, at a minimum, result in substantial cloud cover. Guidance does show some scattered convective development especially during the afternoon, but hasn't been very consistent with it on a run to run basis. Blended guidance leaves the region dry and opted to maintain that in the official forecast for the time being.
A shortwave coming ashore across Southern California Thursday will push across the Southwestern U.S. Friday pushing a frontal boundary towards the area Friday night into Saturday morning. As was the case yesterday, the general signal is that this front will stall somewhere near the gulf coast or perhaps make it a bit offshore before lifting back north over the weekend. At this range and with a large degree of uncertainty, the forecast is essentially a blend of solutions which yields low end Probability of Precipitation both Friday and Saturday.

The old surface boundary seems to be hanging around the I-10 corridor this morning. A warm and moist air mass south of the boundary, along with light south winds, has allowed dense sea fog to develop over the near shore waters as well as the coastal lakes and bays. The sea fog is expected to persist through mid-morning before lift from an approaching disturbance helps to dissipate the fog.
The frontal boundary will move north today as a warm front, before waffling back down to the coast tonight and early Monday. Therefore, there will be the potential for sea fog again tonight.
A strong frontal boundary is expected to move down and through the coastal waters as a cold front early Tuesday. Decent cold air advection noted behind this front with winds becoming north and increasing. Possible small craft advisory conditons on Tuesday.
Winds will decrease on Wednesday and become more easterly as high pressure behind the cold front begins to move off to the east.
