SYNOPSIS – The much-anticipated cold front we’ve been tracking will move across the Wiregrass later tonight, ushering in much cooler and drier air for Friday and the weekend. We’ll see a period of cloudiness, but rain chances remain slim. Cloud cover clears early Friday, leaving us with sunny skies and gusty northwest winds as highs only reach the middle 70s. Look for lows in the 40s this weekend!

COASTAL FORECAST FRIDAY – Choppy on Coastal Lakes and Bays. Winds N at 20-25 kts. Seas 4-6 feet.
TROPICAL UPDATE – There’s a small window for development for the cluster of showers and thunderstorms just east of the Bahamas associated with an upper-level low pressure system. Tropical or sub-tropical development is possible over the weekend, but any threat looks to stay away from the US. We’re also tracking a tropical wave way out in the Atlantic, but development at this time is unlikely. The rest of the Atlantic Basin is tranquil.
