PARTLY CLOUDY AND MILD WITH PATCHY MORNING FOG AND A SLIGHT CHANCE OF SHOWERS OR THUNDERSTORMS TODAY

PARTLY CLOUDY TONIGHT WITH PATCHY FOG TOWARDS MORNING

PARTLY CLOUDY AND MILD TOMORROW WITH PATCHY MORNING FOG

MOSTLY CLOUDY ON WEDNESDAY WITH A CHANCE OF SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS--TURNING COOLER LATE WEDNESDAY

Partly cloudy and mild this afternoon with a 20% chance of showers or thunderstorms. High temperatures will range from the mid-70's in Galveston to near 80 on the mainland. Look for southeast winds at 5-10 mph.

Partly cloudy and cool tonight with patchy fog towards morning. Lows will be in the upper-60's. Winds should be from the southeast at 10-15 mph.

Tomorrow, we should have partly cloudy skies and patchy fog early with mild to warm afternoon temperatures. Highs will range from the mid-70's in Galveston to the low-80's on the mainland. We anticipate southerly winds at 10-15 mph.

On Wednesday, look for mostly cloudy skies with a 40% chance of showers or thunderstorms, decreasing to a 20% chance by the afternoon hours. Highs will range from the mid-70's on the Island to the upper-70's inland, with cooler conditions moving in late afternoon or early evening. Expect southerly winds at 5-10 mph early, becoming northwest at 10-15 mph.

SHORT -TERM OUTLOOK:Increasing moisture and a slight chance of showers will today as southeast winds prevail and a weak disturbance moves across the southern Plains. Partly cloudy skies and mild weather will continue through tomorrow ahead of an advancing cold front.

NATIONAL OUTLOOK:This morning we find a surface low west of Fort Worth, with a warm front extending to the east ans southeast over southern Arkansas, Mississippi and the northern Gulf. Meanwhile, a weak cold front/dry line extends southwest from that low over west-central Texas and northern Mexico. Further west, a couple of cold fronts are moving ashore over the western third of the country with attached lows over Nevada and state. Finally, a slow-moving cold front stretches across the northern tier of states from Montana all the way to Quebec, with attached lows located over northern Wyoming, South Dakota and Quebec.

At the upper-levels, we continue in a mostly zonal west to east flow with a broad weak low pressure trough over eastern Canada and the Great Lakes, a short-wave trough moving east into the southern Plains and a low pressure trough over Washington and Oregon.

LOOKING AHEAD

Mild conditions and a slight chance of showers or thunderstorms will be in our picture today. Tomorrow should bring partly cloudy skies and mild to warm conditions. Rain chances will re-appear on Wednesday as a cold front moves through the area, bringing cooler temperatures for the last half of the week. Rain chances will increase again this weekend as a surface low and upper-level disturbance combines with deep moisture levels to bring showers and thunderstorms to Southeast Texas.

TROPICAL OUTLOOK:

Tropical development is not currently expected in the Atlantic Basin.
