SUNNY AND MILD THIS AFTERNOON

CLEAR AND COOL TONIGHT

MOSTLY SUNNY AND MILD TOMORROW

PARTLY CLOUDY AND MILD ON FRIDAY

Sunny and mild this afternoon. High temperatures will range from the low-70's on the Island to the mid-70's inland. Look for northwest winds at 5-10 mph early, becoming southerly this afternoon.

Mostly clear and cool tonight. Overnight lows will range from near 60 on the Island to the upper-50's on the mainland. Winds should be from the south at 5-10 mph.

Tomorrow, we should have mostly sunny skies and mild temperatures. Highs will range from the mid-70's on the Island to near 80 inland. We anticipate southerly winds at 10-15 mph.

On Friday, look for partly cloudy skies and mild temperatures, turning cooler Friday night. Highs will range from the mid-70's in Galveston to the low-80's on the mainland. Expect southwest winds at 10-15 mph.

SHORT -TERM OUTLOOK:Sunny skies will prevail as drier and slightly cooler air flow in behind yesterday's upper-level trough and weak cold front. High pressure will keep sunny, mild weather around through tomorrow with winds gradually veering back to the south.

NATIONAL OUTLOOK:This morning we find high pressure settled in over Texas. Yesterday's weak cold front is far to the east, stretching from a low south of Mobile across the far eastern Gulf and Cuba to the Caribbean. Meanwhile, to the north and west, a slow-moving cold front winds its way east from Nevada all the way to South Dakota with attached lows over western Colorado and southeast South Dakota. Finally, a third cold front is sagging south into Montana, North Dakota and the Upper-Midwest.

At the upper-levels, we are shifting back to a slightly more zonal west to east flow, although we continue to see an upper-level low and associated trough over the northeast Gulf of Mexico and the Deep South. Further west, a weak high pressure ridge has developed from northern Mexico northeastward to Missouri. Far to the west, a low pressure trough is currently developing along the West Coast.

LOOKING AHEAD

Sunny to partly cloudy skies with cool nights and mild afternoons should prevail through the end of the week. A cold front will reach the coast late Friday, bringing mostly sunny skies and cool temperatures for the second weekend of Mardi Gras. Rain chances will remain low through at least early next week, ensuring great weather for the next several days.

TROPICAL OUTLOOK:

Tropical development is not currently expected in the Atlantic Basin.
