.DISCUSSION...
Light northeast winds will continue overnight across the inland counties,
while along the coast, winds should remain out of the east. These easterly
winds along with moisture in the northern Gulf of Mexico will allow for
the potential development of sea fog to be tonight through Monday
along the coast. Radiational fog will also be possible across the
inland zones tonight. Scattered showers and thunderstorms will also be
possible tonight through Tuesday. Areas that see this precip
will see less of a chance for fog development.
