Tuesday Forecast

Good Tuesday morning everyone!

Meteorologist Ryan Michaels says a cold front is on the way tonight.

It's a quiet start on radar now with cloudy skies and foggy conditions out the door especially away from the coast. Widespread fog will be an issue this morning through about 9 or 10am with a Dense Fog Advisory in effect until then. Otherwise, we'll wait on some scattered storms to arrive in the afternoon. So don't leave home without the umbrella!

Temperatures are mild and muggy with the fog as we're waking up in the widespread 60s. After the fog, we'll see mostly cloudy skies through the midday and temperatures will warm into the mid to upper 70s for daytime highs. However, that warm and moist air moving in on southerly winds will also lead toward some scattered showers developing out in the Gulf and heading toward the Panhandle during the midday and afternoon.

Not only will we see a chance for a scattered shower in the midday developing from the south, but we'll also have a cold front on a quicker approach from the northwest than what was anticipated yesterday. The combination of these two factors will lead toward an unsettled afternoon and evening with rain passing through the Panhandle. Rain chances will be as high as 60-70% this afternoon and evening, and with the passage of the front heading into tonight, dropping to around 40% by tomorrow morning.

Breezy winds from the north take over tonight with the passage of the cold front and they'll remain high throughout the day tomorrow ushering in a much colder air mass. Temperatures will reach the 40s inland to near 50 on the coast tonight and highs tomorrow in the breezy 15-25mph northerly wind will only reach the mid to upper 50s.

Bottom Line...
For today, mostly cloudy skies after dense morning fog with scattered showers and some thunderstorms possible in the afternoon and evening. Highs today reach the mid to upper 70s. Your 7 Day Forecast draws in a much colder air mass for the rest of the work week after today, with smaller rain chances now Wednesday and Thursday but likely by Friday.
