Sunny skies, low humidity levels and cool to mild conditions will give way to increasing clouds tomorrow and mild temperatures with a chance of showers tomorrow night and early Thursday as a weak cold front moves through and pushes off the coast.
This morning, high pressure sits over western Mexico, while our last cold front has drifted to the Bay of Campeche, the southeast Gulf of Mexico, Florida and a low over northern Georgia. Meanwhile, to our north and west, a weak cold front is pushing southeast from southern Nevada to northern New Mexico, the central Plains, Upper-Midwest, the Great Lakes and eastern Canada. Lows are found near and along the front over New Mexico and northeast Nebraska. High pressure is found behind this front over Idaho. Finally, a third cold front is approaching the Pacific Northwest, with the from extending southwest from British Columbia to a low west of Oregon.
At the Upper-levels, we find a mixed zonal west to east flow with some amplification. We continue to see a pronounced upper-level low over Tennessee with a modest trough dipping south into the northern Gulf of Mexico. Further west, a short-wave trough is moving east across the northwest Rockies, while a high pressure ridge is building over the western third of the country from the Desert Southwest northward to Washington state and British Columbia.
Sunny skies with cool nights and mild days will prevail through tomorrow with increasing clouds and a slight chance of rain late Wednesday as another weak cold front reaches the coast. Beyond that the outlook is a little uncertain as a weak upper-level low could bring a chance of rain by Friday or Saturday, however, rain prospects will be low and we will continue to see cool nights and mild days through the end of next weekend.
TROPICAL OUTLOOK:Tropical development is not expected at this time.
