The biggest issue tonight will be dense fog formation. Cool nearshore waters combined with warm, humid air from the Gulf moving over it will create thick sea fog across coastal sections overnight tonight. Visibility will be near or below a 1/4 mile at times, so be careful driving around overnight. A cold front will approach from the west bringing a chance of showers and storms on Thursday. At this time, severe weather is not expected, but any rain will likely be heavy at times.
Rain chances will taper off Friday morning with only isolated showers expected by Friday afternoon. This weekend looks mostly dry. The cold front will lift back north as a warm front Friday afternoon and will be centered across the Ohio Valley by this weekend. This will put us firmly entrenched in the "warm sector" with high temperatures approaching 80 in some areas Saturday and Sunday afternoon. The weekend, besides the fact that it will be mostly cloudy looks decent.
The aforementioned front will begin sagging back closer to the area on Monday, bringing a return to higher rain chances. The best chances will be along and north of I-65, as these areas will be closer to the front itself. The front will finally push through the region by Wednesday, and this is when we expected the highest chance for rain for the entire area.
Temperatures will be at least in the low 70s from now until Tuesday of next week. In fact, as mentioned earlier, we will see upper 70s to around 80 in some areas by Saturday and Sunday afternoon. The earliest sign of cooler weather will be toward the end of next week. Bitterly cold air is not expected, but highs back in the 50s and lows in the 30s will be most probable by the end of next week. We'll keep you posted.
