WIND ADVISORY IN EFFECT UNTIL NOON

MOSTLY CLOUDY, WINDY AND COLD THIS MORNING WITH SOME RAIN, BECOMING PARTLY CLOUDY THIS AFTERNOON

PARTLY CLOUDY, BREEZY AND COLD TONIGHT AND TOMORROW

Mostly cloudy, windy and cold early with a 60% chance of rain, becoming partly cloudy this afternoon. High temperatures will remain in the low-40's. Look for northerly winds at 25-35 mph

It will be partly cloudy, breezy and cold tonight. Overnight lows will range from the mid-30's in Galveston to the low-30's on the mainland. Expect northeast winds at 15-25 mph.

Friday should bring partly cloudy skies and chilly conditions. High temperatures will be near 50. Expect northeast winds at 10-20 mph.

On Saturday, expect increasing clouds and cool temperatures with a 20% chance of showers, increasing to a 40% chance Saturday night. Highs will be in the upper-50's. Look for northeast winds at 10-20 mph.

SYNOPSIS AND OUTLOOK:Windy, colder weather has roared into Southeast Texas behind a strong cold front. Light rain will persist this morning along with strong northerly winds with partly cloudy skies appearing later in the day. This should set the stage for partly cloudy and cold temperatures tonight and tomorrow as high pressure settles into the area.

NATIONAL OUTLOOK:

This morning, a strong cold front has plunged into Deep South Texas and northern Mexico. The elongated frontal boundary extends all the way from central Colorado to near Brownsville. From there, the front extends northeastward across the northwest Gulf of Mexico to lows in Alabama and Tennessee. The front continues on northeast from there as a stationary frontal boundary to another low east of Cape Cod. A large center of high pressure is located behind the front from southern Minnesota to the Texas Panhandle. High pressure also sites over the northwest Rocky Mountains.

At the upper-levels, we seeing a somewhat more amplified flow with a broad high pressure ridge off the U.S. East Coast, a low pressure trough digging southwest from the western Great Lakes to Southern California, and a strong high pressure ridge off the West Coast.

LOOKING AHEAD

Cloudy, windy, wet conditions will give way to clearing skies and cold temperatures tonight and tomorrow as high pressure builds into the area. Clouds will begin increasing again on Saturday with rain chances appearing late Saturday into Sunday as the upper-level trough to our west sends warm, moist air aloft over the cold air at the surface. A fresh influx of cooler air at the surface will back into the region from the northeast on Sunday, keeping cool temperatures around for the start of 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.
