-- Changed Discussion --
THE LOW LEVEL INVERSION FROM LAST NIGHT HAS STAYED IN PLACE KEEPING PLENTY OF MOISTURE TRAPPED AT LOW LEVELS. THIS WILL ALLOW FOR THE CONTINUATION OF THE STRATUS CLOUD DECK THROUGHOUT THE DAY WITH A CHANCE FOR A BRIEF BREAK DURING THE PEAK OF THE AFTERNOON. THIS WILL MODERATE TEMPERATURES ACROSS THE PANHANDLE AND KEEP THEM ABOUT NORMAL FOR THIS TIME OF YEAR WITH HIGHS IN THE MID TO UPPER 70S ACROSS THE PANHANDLE. CLOUDS LINGER INTO THE EVENING AND OVERNIGHT HOURS, REBUILDING ANY BREAKS THAT OCCURRED IN THE AFTERNOON. TEMPERATURES WILL BE SLIGHTLY WARMER THAN LAST NIGHT WITH 60S ALONG THE COAST AND UPPER 50S FURTHER INLAND.
