A CHANCE OF SCATTERED THUNDERSHOWERS TO LINGER TODAY, BUT HOT, DRY WEATHER LIKELY FOR THE WEEKEND

Partly cloudy and hot today with a 20% chance of showers or thunderstorms. High temperatures will be in the low-90's. We should have southerly winds at 5-10 mph. It will be partly cloudy and mild. Low temperatures will range from near 80's on the Island to the upper-70's on the mainland. Expect southerly winds at 10-15 mph. Saturday should bring partly cloudy skies conditions and hot temperatures. Highs will be in the low-90's. Expect southerly winds at 10-15 mph. On Sunday, we should see partly cloudy skies and hot temperatures. Highs will range the low-90's in Galveston to the mid-90's on the mainland. Winds will be from the south at 10-15 mph.

SYNOPSIS AND OUTLOOK: Hot, mostly sunny weather will continue with a chance of isolated thundershowers today. Drier conditions will prevail over the weekend as high pressure builds into the area.

NATIONAL OUTLOOK:

At the surface, an mostly stationary cold front is sagging south into northern Louisiana and the Mid-South. The frontal boundary then extends north along the eastern edge of the Plains to a low in South Dakota. To the northwest, another cold front is pushing into the Dakotas, Wyoming, Utah and Nevada. Elsewhere, high pressure sits over the Four Corners region, the Pacific Northwest and the Ohio Valley. At the upper-levels, we see a large high pressure ridge building over Desert Southwest, the Rockies, Texas and the central Plains. To the east, a low pressure trough is dipping to the south over the eastern third of the U.S. Elsewhere, weak low pressure is developing over the Pacific Northwest.

LOCAL OUTLOOK

More typical late July weather is in store for southeast Texas as partly cloudy skies and hot temperatures persist. We will keep a chance of thundershowers today. Drier conditions will appear for the weekend as the trough washes out and high pressure builds into the area. Rain chances will increase again by Tuesday or Wednesday as a cold front moves south into East Texas.

TROPICAL OUTLOOK:

After a brief fluffy of excitement with former Tropical Depression #2, the Tropical Atlantic Basin has returned to its remarkably quiet weather pattern. The remnants of T.D.#2 are passing through the central Caribbean Sea this morning with very little associated storm activity. Elsewhere, another tropical wave setting off some storm activity southeast of the Lesser Antilles. Otherwise, the Basin is about as tranquil as could be hoped for at this time of year.
