Water vapor imagery was showing a broad ridge across the Gulf Coast. Surface analysis was showing a cold front across far north Georgia and a broad ridge covering the Gulf Coast into Florida. Observation and fog imagery was indicating mostly clear skies over the area due to west winds and large temperature/dew point spreads. However as boundary layer cools there may be areas of fog that will form with best chances across the western half of the forecast area. However, no widespread fog is expected at this time.
The front to the north will sweep through the area as a dry backdoor front this afternoon and wash out just south of the area tonight and Sunday. High pressure will quickly build in from the middle Atlantic region bringing a wind shift to the northeast at the coast with cooler temperatures there both this afternoon and Sunday. Mild temperatures still expected inland. Areas of fog are expected tonight with patchy dense fog possible across the far south near the washed out front.
