MOSTLY SUNNY THROUGH WEDNESDAY WITH SEASONABLY COOL TO MILD DAYS AND COOL NIGHTS

Mostly sunny and cool today. High temperatures will be range from the low-60's in Galveston to the mid-60's on the mainland. Look for westerly winds at 5-10 mph. It will be mostly clear and cool tonight. Lows should range from near 50 in Galveston to the mid-40's on the mainland. Winds will be from the west at 10-15 mph. Tuesday should bring mostly sunny skies and cool to mild temperatures. Highs will range from the upper-60's in Galveston to the the low-70's on the mainland. Expect northwest winds at 10-15 mph. On Wednesday, we should have mostly sunny skies and cool to mild temperatures. Highs will range from the upper-60's on the Island to the low-70's inland. Winds will be from the southeast at 5-10 mph.

SYNOPSIS AND OUTLOOK:Sunny skies and cool to mild conditions will continue for the next three days, as west to northwest winds aloft and at the surface prevail and high pressure dominates our weather.

NATIONAL OUTLOOK:

This morning, high pressure extends all the way from south Texas to the northwestern Rocky Mountains. A cold front extends from the central Gulf of Mexico to Florida and then northward to a low in West Virginia. A second front extends from the low westward to northern Mississippi. A stationary frontal boundary is located over the Great Plains from near Childress, Texas northward to a low north of Minnesota. At the upper-levels we still have an amplified flow with a deep low pressure trough dipping south over the eastern third of the U.S.and a high pressure ridge over the western 2/3 of the country. A developing mid and upper-level low is located south of the high pressure ridge in the Pacific west of Baja California. This may ultimately impact our weather.

LOOKING AHEAD

Sunny skies and cool to mild weather will continue for the next few days, as high pressure and west to northwest winds prevail over Southeast Texas. Looking further down the road, a cold front should reach the coast on Thursday, bringing seasonably chilly weather back. Meanwhile, the developing mid to upper-level low in the Pacific may lead to an increase in rain chances by the end of this week, into next weekend.

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.
