Winds that veered to the south-southeast brought in warmer air along with moisture and a few isolated showers on Monday, especially closer to I-95.

Despite a mostly cloudy sky, highs climbed into the 60s and lower 70s, and this round of warmth sticks around all week.

We’ll watch low pressure drop into the Gulf of Mexico and get cut-off from the main flow of the jet stream, then slide toward the Florida Straits tomorrow.

At the same time, another weak low develops near the Bahamas. It’ll combine with high pressure to our north to give us a stronger onshore flow.

Rain chances bump to 40 percent Tuesday and Wednesday, with another shot of rain ahead of an approaching front Friday.

Highs tomorrow through Friday climb into the mid and upper 70s, then back into the 60s behind the front this weekend.

Poor to fair surfing conditions are forecast this week, with an east-northeast windswell swinging around the southeast Tuesday and Wednesday.

Wave heights will stay a steady three to four feet, occasionally a little higher.

Our recent cold snap chilled sea surface temps into the mid-50s along the Flagler and Volusia County coast, to around 60s along Brevard County’s coast.
