Expect mostly clear skies into early Wednesday morning. It will actually feel somewhat nice with lower humidity and a nice breeze from the east. Morning lows will be in the low to mid 70s.

Skies will be mostly sunny, but late in the day clouds will build with a few isolated storms. The coverage will still be very limited due to dry air with only a 20 percent coverage.
Those isolated storms will move into the gulf quickly, with clearing skies for Wednesday night.

Moisture increases late this week as a tropical wave will pass by, bringing our rain chances up.
With that in mind, expect clouds to increase Friday, with the coverage of scattered storms going up to about 50 percent.
Then this weekend clouds will increase more and rain chances will go up to about the 60 percent range and possibly higher.
As a result, high temperatures will come down a bit to the upper 80s at that time.
