PARTLY CLOUDY AND WARM THROUGH TOMORROW WITH A CHANCE OF SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS

TROPICAL STORM FRED HEADS WEST-NORTHWEST IN THE EASTERN ATLANTIC

Partly cloudy and warm today with an 50% chance of showers or thunderstorms. High temperatures will be in the upper-80's. Expect southeast winds at 5-10 mph. We should see partly cloudy and mild conditions tonight with a 20% chance of thundershowers early, increasing to a 30% chance after midnight. Overnight lows will be in the upper-70's. Look for southeast winds at 5-10 mph.

Friday will bring partly cloudy skies and seasonably warm temperatures with a 40% chance of showers or thunderstorms. High temperatures will be in the upper-80's. Expect southerly winds at 5-10 mph. On Saturday we should see partly cloudy skies and hot temperatures with a 40% chance of scattered showers or thunderstorms, Highs will be in the low-90's. Look for southerly winds at 5-10 mph.

SYNOPSIS AND OUTLOOK:An weakening upper-level low is still lingering along the Texas coast and East Texas. This continue to combine with deep Gulf moisture to produce showers and thunderstorms, especially along the coast and offshore. Rains will begin slowly slacking off through tomorrow.

NATIONAL OUTLOOK

This morning, high pressure sits over eastern Kentucky as well as over southwest Colorado. To the northwest, a mostly stationary cold front is located from northern California and Nevada to Idaho, Montana, North Dakota and Canada. Elsewhere, low pressure is found over Southern Nevada and in the Pacific northwest of Washington state.

At the upper-levels we continue to see a weakening upper-level low along Texas coast and East Texas. A broad high pressure ridge is building over the center of the country from the northeastern Plains to West Texas. Further west, a deep upper-level low is located over British Columbia with an associated low pressure trough along the Pacific Northwest coast.

LOOKING AHEAD

Rain chances will gradually decrease as we move through the later part of this week and the upper-level low slowly dissipates. We should see fairly typical early September weather this weekend with seasonably hot afternoons and a chance of widely scattered thundershowers.

TROPICAL OUTLOOK:

Tropical Storm Fred continues to move west-northwestward into the eastern Atlantic. At 8 am AST, Fred was centered near 20.8 N and 33.2 W. Sustained winds were estimated at 45-mph. Barometric pressure was noted at 1005 MB (29.68"). Fred was moving west-northwest at 10-mph. Elsewhere, storm development is not expected in the Tropical Atlantic Basin at this time.
