MOSTLY SUNNY AND HOT THROUGH TODAY

PARTLY CLOUDY AND HOT TOMORROW WITH A SLIGHT CHANCE FOR THUNDERSHOWERS

Mostly sunny and hot today. High temperatures will range from the mid-90's in Galveston to the upper-90's on the mainland. Expect northeast winds at 5-10 mph early, becoming southeast at 10-15 mph this afternoon. We should see mostly clear to partly cloudy skies and mild conditions tonight. Overnight lows will range from near 80 on the Island to the mid-70's inland. Look for southerly winds at 5-10 mph.

Monday will bring partly cloudy skies and hot weather with a 20% chance of widely scattered showers and thunderstorms. High temperatures will range from the low-90's on the Island to the mid-90's inland. Expect southerly winds at 10-15 mph. On Tuesday we should see partly cloudy skies and hot temperatures with a 10% chance of isolated thundershowers. Highs will range from the low-90's in Galveston to the mid-90's on the mainland. Look for southerly winds at 10-15 mph.

SYNOPSIS AND OUTLOOK:A dry, stable atmosphere prevails over Southeast Texas this morning in the wake of a weak cold front that moved into the Gulf of Mexico yesterday. This will set the stage for a hot, sunny finish to the weekend.

NATIONAL OUTLOOK

This morning, a stationary frontal boundary extends from a low near Corpus Christi northeastward along the Texas and Louisiana coasts to another low near Pensacola, Florida. The front then continues on northeastward through the Carolinas to the Atlantic. Elsewhere, high pressure is situated over western Virginia and Arkansas, while low pressure extends from the southern Rockies to the Great Basin and Desert Southwest. Further north, an active cold front is moving south into Montana, South Dakota and Minnesota.

At the upper-levels, a large high pressure continues from Texas northwestward across the Great Basin to the Pacific Northwest. To the east, a broad low pressure trough is digging south across the eastern third of the country.

LOOKING AHEAD

Sunny skies are on tap today as dry air filters in behind the front that passed through yesterday. This will lead to hot afternoons and slightly cooler nights. Rain chances may re-appear on Monday as the remains of the frontal boundary drift back north, setting off a few thundershowers near the frontal boundary.

TROPICAL OUTLOOK:

The Tropical Atlantic Basin remains quiet overall and storm development is not expected at this time.
