.DISCUSSION...
Influx of low level moisture along axes of convergence continues
to support widely scattered showers and thunderstorms this
afternoon in moderately unstable airmass. These will remain hit-
or-miss into the early evening before diminishing quickly by
sunset. We could see a few patches of fog once again tonight given
the abundant surface moisture in place.

All in all, expect very little change over the next several days
with models maintaining a chance of mostly afternoon showers and
thunderstorms into mid week. Better chances will remain nearer the
coast. We will also remain warm and humid each day with afternoon
highs topping out around 90f, with overnight lows near 80 along
the coast and in the lower 70s farther inland.

Some relief is in the forecast at least as a cool front is
forecast to backdoor into the area Friday into Saturday, dipping
temps 5-10 degrees with a more noticeable reduction in dew points
behind the front next weekend.

.MARINE...
Low pressure over the central plains will maintain onshore winds
through Monday. A weak area of low pressure will develop over the southern
Gulf and this will allow winds to back to the east mid week. A cold
front will cross the coastal waters on Friday and winds will become NE
and increase Friday night into Saturday. Tide levels will remain slightly
elevated this week due to the persistent onshore flow.  43
