Good Thursday morning everyone, it's February!
We're quiet on VIPIR 7 Doppler Radar this morning, but cloud cover is increasing. These low clouds will thicken up through the day, so we'll have to take whatever sun peeks we can get in the morning.
Temperatures are much more tolerable thanks to the clouds and southerly flow from yesterday. We woke up in the upper 30s to mid 40s basically east of HWY231 this morning. But down on the coast and to the west, temps were in the 60s this morning along 30A to Destin starting out the morning drive.
You'll still want the light jacket today. You may keep it through the afternoon despite the temperatures turning seasonally mild in the upper 60s. Cloud cover will increase and with the lack of sunshine in the afternoon those temps can still feel chilly.
A cold front is on the way, and in the meantime southerly flow is pumping up our moisture creating a very buoyant atmosphere in the low levels. So we could see a stray shower develop in that warm southerly moist flow. But it would be light and small, and only for the few in the far western panhandle on the edge of the ridge.
The cold front passes through tonight and into tomorrow morning and with the increase in moisture we may be able to develop a broken line of passing showers. Some may still be passing through by sunrise tomorrow, however, most will see skies starting to shape up by tomorrow morning leading to a beautiful Friday.
There's a better chance for rain coming up this Sunday. We could receive a good inch of rain or possibly higher if thunderstorms can develop.
For today, mostly cloudy skies turning cloudy with highs near 68°. Your VIPIR 7 Day Forecast will feature a bit more cloud cover cruising our skies today as a cold front tries to stir up a stray shower late today into early tomorrow morning.
