SHORT TERM OUTLOOK:Mostly cloudy skies, cooler temperatures, some fog early and a slight chance of showers today will give way to partly cloudy skies, windy conditions and quite cool temperatures tonight and tomorrow as a cold front pushes off the coast this afternoon and moves into the Gulf of Mexico. We may see a chance of showers return late tomorrow as a disturbance begins approaching Texas from the west.
This morning, a cold front is approaching the upper-Texas coast as it moves southeastward with the frontal boundary extending from northwest Mexico to Southeast Texas and then northward to a low over eastern Oklahoma. High pressure is found behind this front over Colorado and Nevada. Meanwhile, a warm front extends eastward across the Deep South to a low near Savannah, Georgia. From there, the front continues east in the Atlantic as a cold front. Elsewhere, a stationary frontal boundary persists from northeast Colorado across the northern and northwest Rockies to British Columbia. Low pressure areas are found along this frontal boundary over western Wyoming and eastern Washington. To the west of this, an isolated low is seen off the Washington coast, while high pressure is banked up against the Rockies over northwest Montana and western Alberta.
At the Upper-levels, we are in a mixed amplified to zonal west to east flow across most of the country. This will continue to keep the coldest air bottled up to our north. Currently, an upper-level low is seen over eastern Canada with an associated low pressure trough dipping southeastward across New England to the Atlantic. Weak high pressure continues over most of the eastern half of the country and the Upper-Midwest, with a broad upper-level low over Montana and Alberta and an associated trough over much of the western half of the country.
EXTENDED OUTLOOK:Mostly to partly cloudy skies and cooler temperatures will prevail through tomorrow as Pacific cold front moves across southeast Texas into the Gulf of Mexico, bringing windy, much cooler conditions and a chance of rain to our area. Looking further ahead, rainy conditions should prevail for most of next week as a series of troughs and upper-level disturbances move eastward across the country. Clouds and periods of rain will keep temperatures slightly cooler for most of next week.
