SYNOPSIS AND OUTLOOK:

Sunny, cool to mild weather is in our picture through tomorrow in the wake of the cold front that pushed through the area late yesterday. This should set the stage for pleasant weekend weather with clouds increasing some on Sunday.

NATIONAL OUTLOOK:

This morning, a cold front is located in the Gulf of Mexico, extending from eastern Mexico to the Florida Panhandle and then on northeastward to a series of lows from South Carolina to eastern Virginia. High pressure is located over South Texas as well as much of the Rocky Mountain region. To our north, a cold front is pushing slowly southward into Oklahoma and the Texas Panhandle, with the frontal boundary extending northward along the eastern edge of the Rockies. High pressure is located behind the front over the central and northern Plains.

At the upper-levels we continue to have a more amplified flow with a high pressure ridge along the East Coast, a deep low pressure trough digging south-southwest from the Great Lakes to Texas and a high pressure ridge over the western third of the country. eastern Canada to the central Plains and a strong high pressure ridge building over the western third of the country.

LOOKING AHEAD

Near ideal weekend weather will persist through early Sunday. We should see some increase in clouds and a stiff southerly breeze developing during the day on Sunday as low pressure develops over North Texas along a stalled frontal boundary.

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.
