As high pressure continues to dominate our weather pattern, an easterly flow will continue resulting in above average temps. Skies will be partly cloudy overnight with low temps in the upper 60's and low 70's. Patchy fog will be possible, especially for inland locations with  low level moisture and light winds.

The ridge of high pressure will begin to weaken and shift east on Thursday.  Isolated showers and storms will be possible after 4 PM, mainly for locations east of I-75.  Winds will shift southerly ahead of the next frontal system approaching on Friday.  As our winds turn to the south, low level moisture will increase, resulting in a higher chance of showers and storms.  Unsettled weather will continue from Friday night through the weekend as the front is expected to stall across the peninsula.  Rain chances will peak on Saturday with a 50% chance of showers and storms.
