.DISCUSSION...
Still expecting conditions to remain warm and muggy as we move into the weekend.
With high pressure located over the northwestern Gulf of Mexico, expect winds to
remain out of the south and will also support moderate transport winds. During the
afternoon hours, expect mixing heights to reach up to 6000 to 8000 feet inland and
around 3000 to 4000 feet along the coast. Humidity levels should drop to around 25
to 35 percent each afternoon further inland, becoming more humid up to 70 percent
each afternoon along the coast.
