MOSTLY SUNNY AND COOL TODAY

PARTLY CLOUDY, BREEZY AND CHILLY TONIGHT AND TOMORROW

INCREASING CLOUDS, BREEZY AND COOL ON SATURDAY WITH A CHANCE OF LIGHT RAIN

Mostly sunny and cold this morning, becoming cool this afternoon. High temperatures will be in the low-50's. Look for northeast winds at 10-15 mph.

It will be partly cloudy and cold tonight. Overnight lows will range from the low-40's in Galveston to near 40 on the mainland. Expect northeast winds at 10-20 mph.

Friday should bring partly cloudy skies, breezy conditions and chilly temperatures. High temperatures will be in the low-50's. Expect easterly winds at 15-25 mph.

On Saturday, we will have mostly cloudy skies, breezy conditions and cool temperatures with a 30% chance of showers. Highs will be in the upper-50's. Look for easterly winds at 15-25 mph.

SYNOPSIS AND OUTLOOK:Chilly weather will hand around a while longer, as a reinforcing surge of colder air moves into Southeast Texas later today. Breezy conditions will prevail behind the front into Saturday with a chance of rain appearing over the weekend as a series of weak upper-level disturbances move across the region.

NATIONAL OUTLOOK:

This morning, a cold front is moving south into Central and East Texas with the frontal boundary extending from Western Canada and the Rockies to Texas and then eastward to a low over northeast Arkansas. The front then continues as a mostly stationary front across the Ohio Valley region. Elsewhere, a deep surface low is centered near Charleston, South Carolina with a cold front extending south into the Gulf of Mexico. Otherwise, high pressure is pushing south into the northern and central Plains and also into upper-New York state.

At the upper-levels, we continue with a mostly zonal west to east flow with a weak upper-level low pressure trough over the Mississippi River Valley and a high pressure ridge located in the Pacific off the West Coast.

LOOKING AHEAD

Chilly conditions will continue into early Saturday as a reinforcing surge of cold air reaches the coast later today. Sunny cool to chilly conditions will give way to breezy weather and increasing clouds and rain chances by late Friday into Saturday, with milder weather on tap for Sunday.

TROPICAL OUTLOOK:

The Tropical Atlantic Basin continues to be quiet overall with no active tropical cyclones and tropical development not expected over the coming 48-hours.
