SUNNY AND MILD THIS AFTERNOON

CLEAR AND COOL TONIGHT

SUNNY AND MILD TOMORROW

SUNNY TO PARTLY CLOUDY, BREEZY AND COOLER ON SATURDAY

It will be sunny and mild this afternoon. High temperatures will range from the low-70's in Galveston to the mid-70's on the mainland. Expect southwest winds at 10-15 mph. We should see clear skies and cool temperatures tonight. Overnight lows will be in the upper-50's. Look for so southwest winds at 5-10 mph.

Tomorrow will bring sunny skies and mild temperatures. Highs will range from the low-70's in Galveston to the mid-70's on the mainland. Expect southwest winds at 10-15 mph. On Saturday, we can expect sunny to partly cloudy skies, breezy conditions and slightly cooler temperatures. Highs will range from the mid-60's on the Island to the upper-60's inland. Look for easterly winds at 10-20 mph.

SYNOPSIS AND OUTLOOK

Dry, cool air over Texas will gradually give way to mild temperatures and slowly increasing humidity levels as we finish the week. Southwest winds will prevail through tomorrow with brisk easterly winds appearing on Saturday.

NATIONAL OUTLOOK

This morning, high pressure sits over Arizona, while an elongated and semi-stationary cold front extends all the way from western Canada through the Plains to Texas and a surface low in Arkansas. The frontal boundary then continues on off to the east across Georgia and South Carolina to the Atlantic. Elsewhere, a cold front is dipping into the central and eastern Great Lakes and New England with a surface lows located west of Nova Scotia.

At the upper-levels we continue in an amplified pattern with a deep upper-level trough over the eastern third of the U.S. and a large high pressure ridge remains over the western half of the country.

LOOKING AHEAD

Sunny skies and cool temperatures will give way to a gradual warm-up as we move towards the weekend. Winds will veer around to the southwest today. A weak cold front will drift into Southeast Texas and stall on Saturday and Sunday, bringing easterly winds and somewhat cooler temperatures on Saturday. There will be a slight chance of rain and cool conditions on Sunday and Monday as the reinforced front finally makes it to the coast. This should be followed by another round of sunny, dry weather next week.

TROPICAL OUTLOOK:

Storm development is not expected in the Tropical Atlantic Basin at this time.
