MOSTLY CLOUDY AND CHILLY TODAY WITH SOME FOG POSSIBLE

CLOUDY TO PARTLY CLOUDY AND COOL TOMORROW WITH MILDER CONDITIONS LIKELY ON MONDAY

Mostly cloudy and chilly today with early morning fog. High temperatures will be in the upper-50's. We should have northeast winds at 10-15 mph. It will be mostly cloudy and chilly tonight. Low temperatures will be in the upper-40's. Expect northeast winds at 10-15 mph. Sunday should bring partly to mostly cloudy skies and cool temperatures. Highs will be near 60. Expect northeast winds at 5-10 mph. On Sunday, we should have partly cloudy cloudy skies and milder temperatures. Highs will be in the upper-60's. Winds will be from the southwest at 10-15 mph.

SYNOPSIS AND OUTLOOK:We should see mostly cloudy skies and chilly temperatures. Cold high pressure at the surface, and a weak upper-level disturbance moving east across the state should keep clouds around today with more sun likely tomorrow and on Monday.

NATIONAL OUTLOOK:

A semi-stationary frontal boundary extends all the way from eastern New Mexico to northern Mexico and then eastward to a low south of New Orleans. The front then continues on east. High pressure has developed behind the front over Oklahoma and the Rockies. Elsewhere, high pressure also sits over the Ohio Valley and Virginia. To our north, a stationary front persist over Montana and the Dakotas, while a couple of fronts are approaching the Pacific Northwest.

At the upper-levels, we have shifted to a more zonal west to east flow, with a weak high pressure ridge over the Mid-South and Ohio Valley, a weak short-wave trough over the eastern Plains and Texas and a weak high pressure ridge over the Rockies.

LOOKING AHEAD

Cloudy, chilly weather will linger for a day or two, before decreasing clouds and milder conditions move in on Monday. A cold front will move south through Texas on Tuesday, possibly bringing a slight chance of rain, followed by cooler conditions and clearing skies. With seasonably cool to mild conditions and sunny skies on tap for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. Another cold front may reach the coast by Friday or so, bringing another chance at rain, followed by chilly temperatures.

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.
