.DISCUSSION...
THE SURFACE HIGH PRESSURE RIDGE WILL LINGER OVERHEAD TODAY. A
SURFACE TROUGH ALONG THE COAST WILL LIKELY BECOME DIFFUSE AS THE
TEMPERATURE GRADIENT RELAXES. THERE WERE LOW-LEVEL CLOUDS SLOWLY
WORKING THEIR WAY NORTHWARD FROM THE GULF AT MID MORNING...WHILE
SOME HIGH LEVEL CLOUDS WERE MOVING EASTWARD ACROSS THE
NORTHWESTERN SET OF COUNTIES. DO EXPECT MORE CLOUDINESS OVER THE
SOUTHERN HALF OF THE FORECAST AREA TODAY DUE TO A SLOW MOISTURE
RETURN OFF OF THE GULF. AN INCREASE IN THE PRESSURE GRADIENT WILL
ALSO LEAD TO INCREASING SURFACE WINDS AS WELL.

THE LATEST GUIDANCE COUPLED WITH THE MODEL SOUNDINGS FORECAST A
LOWER DAYTIME HIGH TEMPERATURE TODAY. THINK THESE ARE ON TRACK
GIVEN THE INCREASE IN THE SKY COVER. FORECAST UPDATE FOR CHANGES
IN THE WIND SPEEDS...SKY COVER...AND DAYTIME HIGH TEMPERATURES.
