pthey're going to start to shift ptoward the south. pthat will help to pump the ptemperatures up so we shouldn't phave an issue getting up to 76, p77 degrees but it also starts to pbring in the moisture, startsz pto raise those dew point numbers pa little bit. pit won't be extremely puncomfortable but notice the pnext 24 hours. pthere's the south wind pumping pin moisture. pthere's your front slowly pwashing toward the south and peast. pand this front comes through on pwednesday. pahead of it, probably very early pin the afternoon on wednesday, pwe're looking at a line of pshowers and thunderstorms and pthe way it's setting up is there pcould be strong storms first in pthe panhandle beginning tomorrow pand this, by the way, is an penhanced chance. pit's above slight risk for psevere weather. pthat does include the pensacola parea, all of mobile, back into pthe coastal mississippi into new porleans and then as the risk pmoves further east, you notice
ptampa are under a slight risk. pbasically north of i-4. pthat slight risk for severe pthunderstorms, that will be very pearly on wednesday afternoon and pthen everything shifts through pand to be honest, we'll follow pit with a decent cooldown. pi'll show you that right now. p76 degrees for a high today. pnice, mild, enjoy the afternoon ptonight mostly cloudy and mild pdegrees. ptomorrow warm and breezy, 77. pthere could be a quick shower ptomorrow afternoon but i think pthe main line of rain is not pcoming through until wednesday, pearly in the afternoon. pboaters, great today and i'll ptake advantage of that because pbeginning tomorrow afternoon, pthe winds and the seas are preally going to get up there, pespecially on wednesday as that pline of storms moves through. pit will be breezy wednesday into pthursday. pafter the rain moves through, plook at the difference in temps. p76 for a high on wednesday. p63 for a high on thursday. pand yep, i got the 40s coming pback for lows on friday and
