Your shopping, holiday decorating, or even exercise plans to burn off Thanksgiving dinner calories will not have to deal with any crazy weather on Friday.
We had perfect weather for our Thanksgiving holiday with sunshine and warm temperatures. No big changes are expected as we approach the weekend before a strong front moves in next week.
Mostly clear skies will stick around through the overnight hours as temperatures drop into the mid to low 60s. If you're heading out for some early Friday shopping, keep in mind the potential for fog.
Visibility could drop to less than a mile in spots through 8 a.m.
A front slips into northern Florida Friday and stalls well to our north. Anticipate another mostly sunny and warm day for any shopping plans with highs in the lower 80s.
Our weekend looks warm and a bit more humid overall with moisture increasing ahead of a much stronger cold front. Showers begin moving into the area late Sunday, as showers and thunderstorms become more numerous into Monday morning. A strong storm or two will be possible.
As the front clears Monday afternoon, gusty winds from the northwest will drag in the coldest air we've seen since early March. Highs Tuesday and Wednesday will be in the 60s and overnight lows drop into the 30s and 40s.
Surf and Boating Forecast
Grab a board and get ready to catch some decent waves again Friday. An easterly swell continues and wave heights will be three to four feet. We're staying in a moderate rip current risk through the weekend.
Seas may be bumpy at times, but not too bad with offshore waves of three to four feet. A lighter chop is expected in the Intracoastal waterways.
With only four days left of hurricane season, we're watching two areas in the Atlantic. Low pressure east-southeast of Bermuda has a low chance of becoming subtropical in the next day or so as it slowly drifts south.
This weekend, this low will lift north and move into an environment that is not conducive for development. If it were to get its act together in time, there's no concern for Florida as it will stay well east of us.
The other area is far away in the eastern Atlantic and has a very low chance of becoming tropical.
The hurricane season officially ends November 30.
