Warmer air flowing over the cooler waters could produce areas of sea fog which could be dense at times Thursday through Friday night. The next cold front should push through the Gulf waters Saturday morning ending the fog and rain chances but ushering in much stronger offshore winds for Saturday night and Sunday.
