MOSTLY CLOUDY AND MILD ON SUNDAY WITH SHOWERS AND ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS---TURNING COLDER SUNDAY NIGHT

Mostly cloudy, breezy and cool today with a 20% chance of rain this afternoon. High temperatures will be in the low-60's. Look for easterly winds at 10-20 mph. It will be cloudy and cool tonight with a 40% chance of showers. Lows should be in the upper-50's. Winds will be from the southeast at 10-15 mph.

Highs will range from the mid-60's in Galveston to the upper-60's on the mainland. Expect southwest winds at 5-10 mph.

SYNOPSIS AND OUTLOOK:Increasing clouds and rain chances are in our picture for the weekend with light showers possible later today and a better chance for rain on Sunday, as an upper-level low to our west and an advancing cold front creates a less stable atmosphere over Southeast Texas.

NATIONAL OUTLOOK:

This morning, a cold front extends from Arizona to northern Mexico, the Gulf of Mexico to extreme south Florida. Elsewhere, high pressure continues from the Great Lakes to the Ohio Valley and Mid-South. High pressure also remains over the Pacific Northwest. A couple of lows along the Maine coast continue to produce snow there, while another cold front is pushing south into Montana, South Dakota and Minnesota.

At the upper-levels, we have an amplified flow with a deep low pressure trough dipping south into New England and the Middle Atlantic states, a high pressure ridge over Texas and the southern Plains, and a developing upper-level low over the Desert Southwest and Great Basin region.

LOOKING AHEAD

We will see increasing clouds through the weekend with an increase in rain chances from this afternoon into Sunday. Another cold front should reach southeast Texas late Sunday, bringing chilly weather again for the new week.

TROPICAL OUTLOOK:

The Tropical Atlantic Basin continues to be quiet overall with no active tropical cyclones and tropical development not expected over the coming 48-hours.
