Cloudy skies, breezy conditions, and cool temperatures will prevail through tomorrow as southwest winds aloft override cool air at the surface and a low develops along the mostly stalled front offshore. Rain chances will continue to be high today, but may decrease some tomorrow as the best chances shift to the south of us and to the west and northwest.
This morning, a slow-moving cold front extends east from a low in the Gulf of California near the Mexican coast to another low in the Gulf of Mexico east of Corpus Christi. From there, the front continues east-northeastward across Southeast Louisiana to the Florida Panhandle and a low over South Carolina. From there, the front continues northeastward in the Atlantic to east of the Canadian Maritime Provinces. High pressure is building in behind this front over Wyoming and Washington
state. Finally, a second cold front is sliding south out of Canada to the Northern Plains and Upper-Midwest with an attached low north of Lake Superior.
At the Upper-Levels, we high pressure over the Bahamas, Florida and the eastern Gulf of Mexico, while a short-wave through is moving east across eastern Canada and the Great Lakes. To the southwest, an upper-level low is found over Arizona and adjacent areas with an associated trough digging southwestward to the Pacific and Baja California.
Cloudy skies, breezy conditions, cool temperatures and periods of rain will persist for much of this week as warm air aloft overrides the much cooler air at the surface. Rain chances may decrease by mid to late week, with rain chances increasing again by Friday and the weekend as deeper moisture returns ahead of another strong cold front due to reach the Texas coast on Sunday or early Monday.
A tropical disturbance near the coast of Honduras has a 40% chance of developing over the coming 5-days before it moves into Central America. Otherwise, tropical Storm formation is not expected at this time.
