PARTLY CLOUDY AND MILD WEATHER IN THE PICTURE THROUGH SUNDAY

Partly cloudy and mild today. High temperatures will range from the mid-70's in Galveston to the upper-70's on the mainland. Look for northeast winds at 10-15 mph. It will be partly cloudy and cool tonight. Low temperatures will be in the mid-60's. Expect southeast winds at 5-10 mph. Saturday should bring partly cloudy skies and mild conditions. High temperatures will be in the upper-70's. Expect southeast winds at 5-10 mph. It will be partly cloudy and mild on Sunday. Winds will be from the southeast at 5-10 mph. High temperatures will be in the upper-70's.

SYNOPSIS AND OUTLOOK:

Mild temperatures and partly sunny skies will be on tap for this weekend as east and southeast winds gradually return to our area. High pressure, currently over Texas, will slowly shift east along with an upper-level trough over the eastern Plains. This should result in rain-free conditions for the weekend.

NATIONAL OUTLOOK

At the surface, high pressure prevails over the eastern Plains from Wisconsin south to Texas, with high pressure also situated over southern Colorado. To our east, a cold front extends south in the central Gulf of Mexico from a low just southeast of New Orleans. A warm front extends eastward from the low across Florida into the Atlantic. Elsewhere, a weak cold front is pushing east through the Ohio Valley while in the west, a cold front is moving into Nevada and northern California with a low located over western Montana. At the upper-levels a slightly more amplified pattern has reappeared with exists with a low pressure trough developing over the eastern Plains, a high pressure ridge over the Rockies and a low pressure trough near the West Coast.

LOCAL OUTLOOK

Partly cloudy and mild conditions for this weekend. Clouds will increase some late Sunday into Monday with a slight chance of rain appearing as an upper-level disturbance moves east. Rain is most likely to remain to our north, however, with mostly dry conditions in the picture for the next week or so.

TROPICAL OUTLOOK:

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