An increase in moisture from the Gulf will give us a slightly better chance of rain Thursday and Friday although showers and isolated storms will still be widely scattered. Drier air moves in for the weekend and it looks mainly dry and continued hot with above average temperatures. Winds will come in from the east-northeast and will be lighter through the weekend which will keep heat indices in the 90s to 100 and nights dropping into the low to mid 70s. A cold front is expected to move through Monday with isolated showers as it moves through and winds shifting to the north, ushering in drier air. This will drop our night time lows into the upper 60s to lower 70s and keep our days in the mid to upper 80s through next Wednesday with mostly sunny skies.

There is a Coastal Flood Advisory until 7 AM Friday as astronomical high tides cause water to come up higher on beaches. Also, there is a high rip current risk Thursday due to higher swells and moderate easterly winds.

Wednesday Night: Partly cloudy with a chance of spot coastal showers by morning and lows in the mid 70s inland to near 80 at the beaches. Winds will come in from the east at 6-12 mph.

Thursday and Friday: Partly cloudy with widely scattered showers and isolated storms. High temperatures will reach the low to mid 90s inland and mid to upper 80s at the beaches with east-northeast winds up to 15 mph.

Weekend: Mostly sunny and hot with highs in the low to mid 90s inland and upper 80s at the beaches with east-northeast winds up to 15 mph.
