-- Changed Discussion --
With the Tropical Disturbance in the Bay of Campeche sending plenty of thick blow off cirrus well to the NE extending into our Coastal Waters and CWA, ended up tweaking low temps up a few degrees, especially to the south and east. These lows are very close to our latest local CAM guidance, which is running very near to the current observations. The only other change of significance was to increase sky cover across the board, especially in the northern Gulf of Mexico.

.Short Term [Tuesday Through Wednesday Night]... A large upper level trough along the east coast will keep upper level northwesterly flow in place across the area through the short term. Surface high pressure centered north of the region will keep the low level flow northerly as well, preventing deep moisture from return and keeping rain chances near zero. Daytime highs will be near average with overnight lows near to slightly below average with the dry airmass in place. .Long Term [Thursday Through Monday]... The dry pattern looks to continue through the extended. The 20/00z Euro keeps the pattern more progressive at the end of the period similar to the GFS. The lack of deep moisture is expected to keep PoPs below 20 percent through the period with daytime highs near average and overnight lows a few degrees below average. .Marine... Offshore flow will prevail for the next several days. Winds and seas will be somewhat elevated on Wednesday and Thursday as another dry cold front moves through. .Fire Weather... Although afternoon relative humidities will remain fairly low through the period, it is not expected to become dry enough to create any Red Flag concerns. However, with the high dispersions on Wednesday, caution should be used during any controlled burns. .Hydrology... Dry weather is expected for the next several days with no flooding concerns.
