THURSDAY Update:  Very Warm Days Continue – Big Weekend Cool-down

Good Morning!  There’s not much to say, and that’s good news.  Each day continues to get warmer.  Today, we’ll probably tease 90 degrees.  Even the nights are starting to moderate.  Friday will be yet another warm, dry April Day.  But, changes are on the horizon.  An approaching cold front will bring a risk of showers and thunderstorms in the overnight hours Friday into early Saturday.  Much cooler air will follow.  We’ll be back in the 40’s Saturday night and Sunday night.  Much cooler days, too.  Next chance of showers returns Tuesday. Here’s my brief forecast discussion. 

CLIMATE DATA:   Yesterday we had a cool morning low of 48, but a warm afternoon high of 86.  (Normal 80/53)

Normal 79/53)

TODAY:   Another cool start.  Abundant sunshine.  High 89.   Southwest  wind at 5 to 10 mph.  Clear and not quite as cool tonight….Low 57. 

The approaching Cold front will bring a severe weather threat to states west of us Friday.  But, the severe weather dynamics will quickly lift to the northeast before the front arrives on our door step.

Expect a big cool-down behind the cold front.  We’ll be back to the 40’s Saturday night. 

NEXT FEW DAYS:   It’ll feel more like June Thursday with a high temperature teasing 90.   Partly sunny Friday.  High 86.  Risk of widely scattered showers by Friday afternoon.  Scattered showers and thunderstorms Friday night and early Saturday, before the cold front sweeps through. Then, much cooler.  Back to the 40’s Saturday night. Sunday’s high only in the 60’s.  Expect lower 40’s by Monday morning. 

BEACH FORECAST:    Risk of scattered thunderstorms by Friday/Friday night and especially Saturday.  Cooler Saturday night and Sunday.  Gulf water temperature 72.  HIGH Rip Current Risk Friday & Saturday and moderate Sunday.
