WEATHER-WXWALL


Strong high pressure off of the Southeast US Seaboard will dominate our

local weather patterns through the coming weekend. A dry and mostly sunny

pattern will result through Sunday with daytime highs in the middle 80s and

morning lows in the 60s. A persistent Southeast and Southerly breeze will

cause the humidity to slowly increase, but it won't get high enough to make

the pattern too uncomfortable.

A cold front will approach early next week with an increase in cloudiness on

Monday. Our next chance for rain comes as the front arrives on Tuesday,

when some showers and perhaps gusty thunderstorms sweep in from the

Gulf. Return to index of stories...
