Synopsis:<span-size:11.0pt;font-family:"Calibri",sans-serif"> A weak upper level low and associated stationary boundary will linger overhead/near the coast today. This will result in another day of scattered showers and thunderstorms. Thursday through the remainder of the period a light to moderate onshore flow will prevail as weak high pressure becomes the dominant influence over the northeastern Gulf of Mexico. Rain chances taper down by Friday and into the weekend, though an isolated thundershower or two cannot be completely ruled out. Winds and seas will be higher in and near thunderstorm activity.
