Warm Afternoons and Mild Nights through Early Next Week; Midweek Storms?

Skies will remain generally fair through the weekend and into early next week, except for bouts with early morning fog. Weak high pressure at the surface and in the upper atmosphere will preclude any rain chances through the next several days. Light wind and clear skies will, however, lead to early morning fog. By midweek, the upper air ridge moves east and allows a cold front to race across the State. That front picks up substantial Gulf moisture to induce scattered showers and thunderstorms, which exit into the Gulf before Thursday. In its wake, temperatures fall some 15 degrees. Meanwhile, Sub tropical Storm Oscar will make a transition to a hurricane, but remain safely out in the Atlantic.
