PARTLY CLOUDY, MILD TO WARM WEATHER TO CONTINUE WITH AREAS OF FOG

Partly cloudy and warm today. High temperatures will range from the upper-70's in Galveston to the low-80's inland. Look for southerly winds at 10-15 mph. It will be partly cloudy and mild tonight with areas of fog developing. Low temperatures will be in the upper-60's. Expect southwest winds at 5-10 mph. Friday should bring mostly cloudy skies early with areas of fog, becoming partly cloudy and warm later in the day. High temperatures will be in the upper-70's.. Expect easterly winds at 5-10 mph. It will be partly cloudy and warm on Saturday with a 20% chance of isolated showers or thunderstorms. Winds will be from the southeast at 10-15 mph. High temperatures will be near 80.

SYNOPSIS AND OUTLOOK:

Mild to warm temperatures, some overnight and afternoon fog and partly to mostly cloudy skies should continue through the end of the week. We may see a slight chance of rain on Saturday as a weak upper-level disturbance moves through the region and a cool front over West Texas edges east.

NATIONAL OUTLOOK

At the surface, a couple of cold fronts are moving into the Texas Panhandle this morning. One front extends east from southern Nevada to a low in western Oklahoma. The second front, extends from northern New Mexico to a low near Kansas City. Elsewhere, high pressure is over the Great Basin and northern Rockies and also over the Great Lakes region. A weak frontal boundary continues over the Deep South. At the upper-levels, an amplified pattern is evident with a high pressure ridge over the Mississippi Valley, a low pressure trough over New England and northeastern U.S. and another trough developing developing over the Rockies.

LOCAL OUTLOOK

Looking ahead, south to southeast winds will keep seasonably warm weather around through the weekend. We may see some fog and increasing clouds over the weekend along with a chance of rain as a cool front pushes east across the state along with an upper-level disturbance. Looking further ahead, a fairly strong cold front for this time of the year should reach the coast by Tuesday or so.

TROPICAL OUTLOOK:

The Tropical Atlantic Basin is quiet and tropical cyclone development not expected over the next 48-hours.
