SHORT TERM OUTLOOK:A reinforcing push of cool dry air tonight will keep sunny skies with cool nights and mild days around through Friday.
This morning, our last cold front still persists from the northwest Caribbean Sea to a low near the western tip of Cuba with the front extending east-northeastward into the Bahamas. Closer to home, a weak cold front is pushing southeastward across West and West-Central Texas with the front extending from Arizona to Texas and then northeastward to a low in northern Missouri. High pressure is found behind this front over
Colorado and British Columbia. High pressure is also found to the east over Mississippi, western North Carolina and the Atlantic east of Cape Cod. Meanwhile, to our west, a cluster of low pressure centers has developed over California with a Pacific front moving ashore along the California coast.
At the Upper-levels, we are in a mixed zonal west to east flow and an amplified pattern with an upper-level low pressure trough over eastern Canada, a mostly zonal west to east flow over the eastern half of the U.S, and a high pressure ridge building over West Texas and the Rockies. Finally, far to the west, a deep low pressure trough is developing in the Pacific and along the California coast.
EXTENDED OUTLOOK:Seasonably cool mornings and mild afternoon temperatures along with sunny skies will prevail into Friday as weak cool fronts keep relatively dry air in place over Texas. Clouds and rain chances may increase some by late Friday into this weekend as southerly winds bring more moisture back into the area and another weaker, cold front approaches Southeast Texas. Sunny skies and cool to mild temperatures will return by Tuesday or Wednesday of next week as another weak cold front reaches the coast. With cloudy, mild and somewhat wetter weather returning late next week into next weekend.
