Good Tuesday morning everyone!
It's a quiet start on radar this morning with just a few stray showers to our north along a stalled out front in MS, AL, and GA once again. We have partly cloudy skies right now, and that's allowing some of our temperatures to cool on down to the dew point where we'll develop patchy fog again as well.
Otherwise, temperatures are spread out from near 60 to the low 70s and that's largely determinant on our winds, clouds, and dew points as they're all varied across the Panhandle. Those with clearer skies this morning were able to cool to the low 60s and create the patchy dense fog along I-10. Those with a few more clouds may have started more or less in the mid to upper 60s. Meanwhile, in the mornings, that southerly breeze has a warming effect on the coast keeping those closest to the beaches in the low 70s to start. But in the afternoons, it does act to keep temperatures down.
Some of the fog lifts out through the mid morning creating a bit of cloud cover through about 9am before we start to see that lift and disperse further to partly to mostly sunny skies for the rest of the day. Sunshine warms up inland areas into the mid 80s once again this afternoon. But that now, relative to land, cooler Gulf water temperature in the mid 70s acts to keep the coast in the upper 70s to near 80° for those along or near the beaches, perhaps highs in the low 80s for those around the bays.
That southerly breeze also draws in moisture from the Gulf. And it's not out of the question for us to see some of that warm & moist, buoyant, air rise up this afternoon with peak daytime heating. That rising motion could be enough to create a stray, isolated & small, brief shower for really less than 10% of the Panhandle. We'll keep small rain chances along in the forecast for Wednesday morning as the last of the fronts passes through the Southeast and may stir up a handful of stray, brief and light, showers during the morning commute.
The frontal range and storm track to our north slide out east as high pressure builds in for the end of the week bringing more sunshine than clouds to Thursday and Friday.
For today, mostly cloudy skies with some fog in the morning turns partly to mostly sunny throughout the day with a less than 10% chance for a stray, small & brief, shower. Highs today reach the upper 70s on the immediate coast, to low 80s around the bays, to mid 80s further inland. Your 7 Day Forecast keeps us running above average as the week continues, and even getting warmer by the end of the work week.
