PLEASANT OCTOBER WEATHER TO CONTINUE WITH PARTLY SUNNY SKIES AND MILD TO WARM AFTERNOONS AND COOL NIGHTS

FORMER TROPICAL DEPRESSION #9 CONTINUES TO WEAKEN OVER BELIZE

Mostly sunny to partly cloudy and warm this afternoon. High temperatures will be be in the low-80's. We should have northeast winds winds at 5-10 mph. It will be mostly clear and cool tonight. Low temperatures will range from the low-60's in Galveston to the upper-50's on the mainland. Expect northeast winds at 5-10 mph. Saturday should bring partly cloudy to mostly sunny skies and warm temperatures. Highs will be in the low-80's. Expect easterly winds at 5-10 mph. On Sunday, we should see partly cloudy skies and warm afternoon temperatures. Highs will be in the low-80's. Winds will be from the south at 5-10 mph.

SYNOPSIS AND OUTLOOK:Expect more superb October weather as an upper-level high pressure ridge to our west slowly shifts east, keeping seasonably mild and dry weather around for awhile longer.

NATIONAL OUTLOOK:

At the surface, high pressure extends from Arkansas, East Texas and northern Mexico to Colorado. To the east, a developing low over western Cuba along a frontal boundary will bring gale force winds and rough seas to the Bahamas. Another low is resulting in storm conditions along the New England coast. Looking west, a cold front is moving southeast from central California to a low over southwest Montana. The front then continues northward into Canada.

At the upper-levels, we are easing back into a slightly more amplified pattern with a deep upper-level low east of Boston, a weak high pressure ridge over the Great Lakes and a broad high pressure ridge over the southwestern U.S. and central Rockies. Far to the west, low pressure is developing in the Pacific west of Oregon and Washington. LOOKING AHEAD

Generally pleasant weather will prevail into the weekend, with cool to mild nights and warm afternoon temperatures. A low pressure trough expected to develop to our west, will turn our winds around to the south on Sunday and Monday with increasing clouds and moisture levels as we begin the new week.

TROPICAL OUTLOOK:

he remnants of former Tropical Depression #9 are now drifting east into Belize as a weakening 1008 MB low. It is being given a 10% chance for developing over the coming five days.

However, closer to the U.S., a frontal low developing over western Cuba is expected to deepen and move east-northeast into the western and central Bahamas over the coming 24-48 hours. This system will produce heavy rains and gusty winds over southern Florida and gale force winds and seas to 9 feet over the area from the southwest Bahamas to the northeastern Bahamas. Although this system is expected to remain non-tropical in nature, Mariners Warnings are in effect for much of the region. Otherwise, conditions remain unfavorable overall for any development in the Tropical Atlantic Basin and tropical cyclone development is not expected at this time.
