A winter "heat wave" of sorts is building to the south of the area and set to spread northward to boost low and high temperatures well above normal for the remainder of the week. High pressure aloft will build and strengthen across Florida and the western Atlantic, prompting a warming trend and deflecting any approaching storm systems or cold fronts ... so locally, rain chances will remain quite low with a scattering of clouds and considerable moisture levels thanks to a southeast and southerly wind through Friday. Tonight, minimum temperatures will fall to only around 55 to 60 degrees in most locations, and highs will reach the middle 70s with a partly cloudy to partly sunny sky. Patchy fog is possible Wednesday morning, and basically each morning to follow this week.
