Partly cloudy, breezy and mild tonight with a 20% chance of thundershowers. We should have easterly winds at 10-15 mph with gusts to 27-mph. Low temperatures will range from the mid-70's's in Galveston to the low-70's on the mainland.

Tomorrow should bring mostly cloudy skies, windy conditions and mild temperatures. There will be a 60% chance of showers and thunderstorms. Highs will be near 80 We anticipate southeast winds at 15-20 mph with gusts to 30-mph.

On Saturday, look for mostly cloudy skies, breezy conditions and warm temperatures with a 40% chance of showers and thunderstorms. Highs will be in the low-80's. Expect southeast winds at 10=-15 mph with gusts to 20-mph.

SHORT-TERM OUTLOOK:Increasing clouds and winds will be in our picture today with a good chance of showers and thunderstorms tomorrow, as a short-wave trough moves towards the southern Plains and we get an influx of Gulf moisture.

NATIONAL OUTLOOK:This morning, high pressure sits over Tennessee and Wyoming while a low pressure area persists over Baja California. A cold front continues from the southern Gulf of Mexico eastward across the Florida Keys to the Bahamas. Far to the north, a frontal boundary is dipping south through the Dakotas and Upper-Midwest to the Great Lakes and eastern Canada where it transforms into an active cold front. Meanwhile, to the northwest, a cold front is moving inland over Washington and Oregon with attached lows over Washington and Alberta.

At the Upper-Levels, we are back to a more zonal west to east flow with a weak low pressure trough digging southward across the Upper-Midwest and Great Lakes to the Tennessee River region and the northeast Gulf of Mexico. To the west, a high pressure ridge is evident over East Texas and Louisiana. To our west, a short-wave trough is moving east from northwest Mexico and West Texas. Finally, a developing low pressure trough is found in the Pacific west of the U.S. West Coast.

EXTENDED OUTLOOK:Warmer temperatures, breezy conditions and increasing clouds are in our picture as we finish the week. A good chance of showers or thunderstorms will appear by late tonight into Friday as a short-wave trough moves across the southern Plains while high pressure to our east brings breezy conditions and increasing Gulf moisture back to our area. Clouds and rain will persist off and on through Sunday with a stronger trough and approaching cold front giving us a very good shot at rain again on Sunday.

TROPICAL OUTLOOK:Tropical development is not expected at this time.
