A very weak upper-level feature has produced light showers and sprinkles along the Apalachee Bay and eastern Big Bend counties. The showers are not expected to be long-lasting and should continue to move northeasterly. Otherwise, scattered cloudiness, widespread warmth, and considerable Gulf moisture will be prevalent in the weather pattern through Tuesday. Lows tonight will fall only to the upper 50s and lower 60s with areas of fog possible before sunrise. Occasional breaks of sunshine, along with southerly winds and modest upper high pressure, should boost daytime temperatures well into the mid and upper 70s, with some areas maxing out around 80°. By Wednesday, a stronger cold front will swing into the warm and moist atmosphere in the Southeast and produce developing rain with possible stronger storms, capable of causing gusty winds. A slight severe-weather risk does exist Wednesday afternoon and evening, focusing on the tri-state region. We’ll keep you advised as conditions develop and the forecast becomes clearer.
