PARTLY CLOUDY AND HOT THROUGH TOMORROW WITH A SLIGHT CHANCE OF ISOLATED THUNDERSHOWERS

PARTLY CLOUDY AND HOT ON THURSDAY AND FRIDAY WITH A CHANCE OF SHOWERS OR THUNDERSTORMS

Partly cloudy and hot today with a 10% chance of isolated showers or thundershowers this afternoon. High temperatures will range from the low-90's in Galveston to the mid-90's on the mainland. Expect southerly winds at 10-15 mph. We should see partly cloudy skies and mild conditions tonight. Overnight lows will range from the low-80's on the Island to the upper-70's inland. Look for southwest winds at 5-10 mph.

Wednesday will bring partly cloudy skies and hot temperatures with a 10% chance of isolated thundershowers. High temperatures will range from the low-90's in Galveston to the mid-90's on the mainland. Expect southwest winds at 5-10 mph. On Thursday we should see partly cloudy skies and hot temperatures with a 20% chance of showers or thundershowers. Highs will range from the low-90's on the Island to the mid-90's inland. Look for southwest winds at 5-10 mph.

SYNOPSIS AND OUTLOOK:High pressure aloft will keep partly cloudy skies and hot weather around as we move through this week. Slightly deeper moisture over the area may set off a few showers today and tomorrow with rain chances increasing slightly as we near the weekend. Otherwise, expect mostly sunny, hot weather through tomorrow. p>NATIONAL OUTLOOK

This morning, a surface low is located over the northeast Gulf of Mexico near the remnants of an old frontal boundary. Elsewhere, a elongated cold front extends from California and Nevada to a low in Utah. The front then continues on east across the Rockies to the eastern and northern Plains to surface lows in the Dakotas and southern Canada. A warm front stretches from the low in the Dakotas eastward across the Midwest and Ohio Valley. Elsewhere, high pressure sits over Oregon.

At the upper-levels, we see a slightly more amplified pattern. A large high pressure ridge continues to extend north from Texas across the Plains to the Great Lakes and Canada. Far to the northwest, a low pressure trough is moving through Montana and Idaho, while far to the east a low pressure area over eastern Canada is generating a weak trough over New England.

LOOKING AHEAD

Hot, mostly dry and sunny weather will continue for the foreseeable future, though each day will bring a slight chance of isolated thundershowers. Looking further down the road, the high pressure ridge over our area will gradually shift north and west while a low pressure trough deepens over the East. This may pave the way for more moisture and some rain as a weak cold front drifts into Southeast Texas towards the end of this week into the weekend.

TROPICAL OUTLOOK:

The Tropical Atlantic Basin remains quiet overall and storm development is not expected at this time. A surface low in the northeast Gulf of Mexico shows little potential for development at this point in time.
