MOSTLY SUNNY TO PARTLY CLOUDY AND COOL THIS AFTERNOON

MOSTLY CLEAR TO PARTLY CLOUDY AND COOL TONIGHT

PARTLY CLOUDY AND COOL TOMORROW--TURNING WINDY AND COLDER TOMORROW NIGHT WITH A CHANCE OF THUNDERSHOWERS

MOSTLY CLEAR TO PARTLY CLOUDY, WINDY AND COLD ON THURSDAY

Mostly sunny to partly cloudy and cool this afternoon. High temperatures will be in the upper-60's. Look for westerly winds at 10-15 mph.

Mostly clear to partly cloudy tonight. Overnight lows will range from the mid-50's in Galveston to the low-50's on the mainland. We should have northwest to northeast winds at 5-10 mph.

Tomorrow, we should have partly cloudy skies and cool temperatures, becoming mostly cloudy, windy and colder tomorrow night with a 50% chance of thundershowers. Highs will be in the upper-60's. We anticipate westerly winds at 5-10 mph, becoming northerly at 15-25 mph with gusts to 30-mph.

On Thursday, look for mostly cloudy skies early, becoming partly cloudy windy and colder with northerly winds at 20-30 mph and gusts to 40-mph. Highs will be in the 50's, dropping to the 40's by late afternoon.

SYNOPSIS AND SHORT-TERM OUTLOOK

Some much needed sunshine is in store for today, with cool temperatures lingering as another weak cold front pushes south through Texas. Increasing clouds and a chance for showers will appear late tomorrow as another, colder and windy front, moves into Southeast Texas bringing some of the coldest temperatures of the year to the area by Thursday.

NATIONAL OUTLOOK:This morning, high pressure is over the northwest Gulf of Mexico behind yesterday's cold front. That front extends from the southwest Gulf of Mexico northeastward to a low over Alabama. A warm front stretches to the east from that low to the Atlantic. To our north, a second cold front is moving south into Texas with the frontal boundary extending from southern Nevada to Colorado and then southward into North Central Texas and then northeastward to the Upper-Midwest and a low over North Dakota. A third, and more potent cold front is pushing south into Idaho and Montana with high pressure over western Canada. Finally, a surface low is noted in the Pacific west of Oregon.

At the Upper-Levels, we have shifted back to a more zonal west to east flow with a modest high pressure ridge over eastern Canada, the Great Lakes and the Mid-Atlantic region, An upper-level low continues over the Upper-Midwest with a broad, weak trough over the western half of the country.

LOOKING AHEAD

Sunshine and near ideal weather today and tomorrow will give way to a chance of thundershowers by tomorrow night with very windy conditions and much colder temperatures by Thursday. Friday should bring the coldest temperatures so far this year with lows ranging from near 40 at the coast to the 30's on the mainland. Milder conditions and increasing clouds are likely for the weekend, with rain chances re-appearing late Sunday.

TROPICAL OUTLOOK:

Tropical development is not currently expected in the Atlantic Basin.
