Discussion

An ocean flow of air has produced an abundance of low-level moisture in our area and early morning fog and low clouds is the result. After another round of fog early on Wednesday, the ocean flow will relax somewhat and temperatures by Thursday afternoon could approach 80 degrees with plenty of sunshine. The warm weather will continue on Friday, but a cooling trend is likely to take place this weekend. Elsewhere, heavy rain and severe weather continues to be a major problem in the south-central US with systems moving very slowly from west-to-east adding to the excessive rainfall amounts. More than six inches of rain can fall over the next couple of days in places like Louisiana and Arkansas and tornadoes will threaten the area from Houston to Little Rock.
