The transition to a more summer-like pattern is nearing completion.  With the high-pressure ridge all week, we haven’t seen showers or storms forming with the daytime heating and the seabreeze.  We should gain those features of scattered late-day shower and storm activity Saturday and Sunday.  Lows tonight will fall to the low to mid 60s with areas of fog developing around sunrise.  With a sun-and-cloud mix in the sky, highs will reach the upper 80s to around 90° away from the coast.  A disturbance near the mid-South may create wind boundaries that may clash with the local seabreezes and form spotty rain and thunder.  Coverage of rain shouldn’t exceed 30% Saturday through the middle of next week.  Temperatures will still be near or slightly above seasonable levels.
