Weather pattern to change very little for a week.
SYNOPSIS: High pressure at the surface and aloft over the far eastern GOM will drift slowly east and across the state through the weekend. Low pressure systems and cold fronts will be deflected to the northeast over the dome of persistant high pressure. Thank goodness it's not the middle of summer, because if it were we''d be baking hot!!
THE NEXT 6 DAYS: Mostly clear with lows in the low-mid 60s and highs initially in the mid 70s to low 80s inland. The low temperatures will warm a few degrees whereas the highs will remain mostly just below 80 along the coast and up to the mid 80s by the weekend and into next week.
The next front to even remotely affect the peninsula portion of the state is slated for next Thursday...however, it seems doubtful that even that scenario will materialize. We'll just have to watch and see. At this point, even if it does affect us it's punch would be brief and weak.
For the fair weather friends, this next entire week was tailored made just for you >: )
