SUNNY TO PARTLY CLOUDY SKIES AND COOL TO MILD WEATHER IN THE PICTURE FOR GALVESTON

Mostly sunny and cool to mild today. High temperatures will range from the upper-60's in Galveston to the low-70's on the mainland. Look for southeast winds at 10-15 mph this afternoon. It will be mostly clear to partly cloudy and cool tonight. Low temperatures will be in the upper-50's. Expect southeast winds at 10-15 mph. Thursday should bring partly cloudy skies somewhat milder conditions with a 20% chance of showers. High temperatures will be in the low-70's. Expect southeast winds at 10-15 mph. It will be partly cloudy and mild on Friday. Winds will be from the east at 10-15 mph. High temperatures will range from the mid-70's on the Island to the upper-70's inland.

SYNOPSIS AND OUTLOOK:

High pressure is gradually shifting east, allowing east to southeast winds to return to southeast Texas. This will result in a gradual warming spell with increasing clouds as we finish the week. A weak upper-level disturbance will track across Texas tomorrow bringing a slight chance of rain to the area. Otherwise, cool to mild conditions and partly sunny skies will prevail.

NATIONAL OUTLOOK

At the surface, a cold front is located from the southern Gulf of Mexico northeast to south Florida Panhandle and then northward off the U.S. East Coast. High pressure sits over southern Ohio, ridging southwestward into east Texas. High pressure also sits over western New Mexico and Idaho. Elsewhere, a cold front is moving slowly south through the central Rockies and Great Basin area with a low just east of Salt Lake City. To the northeast, a stationary front extends from northeast Kansas to Montana and western Canada. At the upper-levels an amplified pattern exists with a deep low pressure trough digging south through the eastern Great Lakes and the Appalachians. A high pressure ridge is located along the West Coast.

LOCAL OUTLOOK

A gradual return to milder conditions is in store as we finish the week. We should see increasing clouds by late Wednesday into Thursday with a slight chance of rain on Thursday as an upper-level disturbance moves across the center of the country. We may see another shot at rain over the weekend as a low pressure trough moves into the Plains. Otherwise, unseasonably cool temperatures will give way to more typical April conditions by later this week.

TROPICAL OUTLOOK:

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