SYNOPSIS

Onshore flow has brought warm, moist air back into the region,
resulting in areas of dense marine fog in the nearshore waters and
lakes and bays. Conditions should improve late this morning as
onshore winds become elevated. High pressure will dominate the
east Gulf for much of this week, with prevailing light to
moderate onshore winds expected. Periods of light rain showers and
marine fog, some dense at times, should be expected through late
Thursday or Friday morning with the next frontal system.
