Thursday: The morning starts with a good deal of clouds which should taper off through sunrise and beyond. Temperatures are expected to be quite mild, ranging in the lower to upper 60s. As we transition to the afternoon, expect warm daytime highs (lower 90s inland) with clouds re-developing.
Thursday Marine and Beach forecast information and your Thursday Tide Times are below:
Friday: Similar conditions to Thursday are expected with mild lows in the lower 60s. Expect highs in the lower to potentially mid 90s with a mix of sun and clouds in the afternoon. Increasing low level humidity may make it feel even warmer.
Saturday and Sunday: The hottest weekend of this year so far is anticipated, with mid 60s for morning lows and lower to mid 90s expected for afternoon highs on both days. Sunday AKA Mother's Day, is expected to be cloudier with 10% coverage of showers in the picture. A deep plume of tropical moisture will be moving over Florida, and some of that moisture may allow for a few showers on Sunday.
Monday: More moisture is anticipated to build northward toward the Big Bend and South Georgia. Expect lows in the mid to upper 60s with partly cloudy skies. The afternoon looks to be mostly cloudy and warm with temperatures in the upper 80s. Rain coverage is forecast to be around 30%.
Tuesday and Wednesday: More of a rain threat is expected as the moisture and an area of low pressure drift north. Expect lows in the upper 60s, highs in the mid 80s, with rain coverage around 50% or higher.
