SPECIAL MARINE WARNING IN EFFECT AS THUNDERSTORMS MOVE IN

MOSTLY CLOUDY THIS MORNING WITH THUNDERSTORMS LIKELY

PARTLY TO MOSTLY CLOUDY AND WARM THROUGH FRIDAY WITH A CHANCE OF SHOWERS OR THUNDERSTORMS

Cloudy and windy this morning with a 70% chance of showers or thunderstorms, becoming partly cloudy this afternoon with a 30% chance of showers or thunderstorms. High temperatures will be in the low-80's. Expect northeast winds at 15-30 mph this morning, becoming southeast at 10-20 mph this afternoon

We should see partly to mostly cloudy skies and mild temperatures tonight with lows in the mid-70's. Look for southeast winds at 10-15 mph.

Thursday will bring partly cloudy skies and warm conditions with a 30% chance of showers or thunderstorms. Highs will be in the mid-80's. Expect southeast winds at 10-15 mph. On Friday we should see partly cloudy skies and warm temperatures again with a 30% chance of showers or thunderstorms. High temperatures.will be in the mid-80's. Look for southeast winds at 10-15 mph.

SYNOPSIS AND OUTLOOK:

A line of thunderstorms is pushing south through Southeast Texas this morning and will bring rain and gusty winds to Galveston County. Rain chances should diminish later today. The storms are being produced by a short-wave trough moving east through the area tomorrow. Rain chances will linger into Friday as another short-wave low pressure trough moves east into the center of the country by the end of the week.

NATIONAL OUTLOOK:

This morning, an outflow boundary/ wind shift line is moving into Southeast Texas accompanied by gusty winds and brief, heavy rain. Meanwhile, a weak high pressure area sits over North Texas while low pressure continues over West Texas. Elsewhere, a cold front is moving south into the central Plains and upper-Midwest. High pressure is located behind the front over the central plains with high pressure also noted over the central and northern Rockies.

At the upper-levels, we find a mildly amplified flow with a high pressure ridge along and off the U.S. East Coast, short-wave low pressure trough over the eastern Plains and another short-wave low pressure trough tracking eastward through the western third of the country.

LOOKING AHEAD

Although rain chances will be decreasing as we move to the end of the week, the chance of showers and thunderstorms will continue each day as the upper-level troughs slowly shift east, deep Gulf moisture continues to flow into the state, and daytime heating contributes to the develop of some showers and thunderstorms. Otherwise, expect partly to mostly cloudy skies and warm temperatures.

TROPICAL OUTLOOK:

The Tropical Atlantic Basin remains quiet overall and storm development is not expected at this time.
