Both the colorized infrared satellite and the the sea surface analysis show the encroaching clouds to south. The is partially due to the movement of the high pressure system equatorward.

The stationary front should keep the cloud cover to the south, and bring some decent rain.

The atmospheric sounding shows 53 mm (~2 inches) of precipitable water, a temperature inversion, and low surface winds. Air quality could be less than desirable for the day.
