PARTLY CLOUDY TO MOSTLY SUNNY, BREEZY AND HOT TODAY WITH A SLIGHT CHANCE OF ISOLATED THUNDERSHOWERS

PARTLY CLOUDY, BREEZY AND MILD TONIGHT

PARTLY CLOUDY TO MOSTLY SUNNY AND HOT TOMORROW WITH A CHANCE OF ISOLATED THUNDERSHOWERS

PARTLY CLOUDY TO MOSTLY SUNNY AND HOT ON WEDNESDAY WITH ISOLATED TO SCATTERED THUNDERSHOWERS

Partly cloudy to mostly sunny, breezy and hot today with a 20% chance of isolated thundershowers near the coast early and over inland areas in the afternoon hours. High temperatures will be in the low-90's. Expect southerly winds at 10-15 mph, gusting to 20-mph.

Partly cloudy, breezy and mild tonight. Morning lows will be in the low-80's. Look for southerly winds at 10-15 mph.

Tomorrow should bring partly cloudy to mostly sunny skies and hot temperatures with a 20% chance of isolated thundershowers. Highs will be in the low-90's. Expect southwest winds at 5-10 mph. On Wednesday, look for partly cloudy to mostly sunny skies with a 20% chance of scattered thundershowers. Morning lows will be in the low-80's and afternoon highs will be in the low-90's. Expect westerly winds at 5-10 mph.

SHORT-TERM OUTLOOK:

Partly cloudy to mostly sunny skies will prevail through tomorrow hot temperatures and only a slight chance of thundershowers as a weak cold front dips into North Texas and a low pressure trough moves to the east across the Plains.

NATIONAL OUTLOOK:

This morning, a slow-moving cold front extends east-northeastward from Arizona across West and North Texas to a low in eastern Plains near Kansas City. From there, the frontal boundary bends eastward across the Midwest to Virginia and a couple of attached lows in the Atlantic. Elsewhere, an isolated low sits over Mexico, while to the north another, mostly stationary frontal boundary, extends northeastward from southern Nebraska to eastern Canada with an attached low over northern Wisconsin. Finally, in the West, a third frontal boundary stretches from Wyoming to British Columbia while surface high pressure areas can be found over Saskatchewan and in the Pacific west of British Columbia.

At the Upper-Levels, a high pressure ridge continues over Southern California and the Desert Southwest north and northwestward to Idaho and the northern Rockies. To the east, a second high pressure ridge is seen over the Mid-South. Meanwhile, a short=wave low pressure trough is digging south over Washington and Oregon with a deeper trough moving eastward across the the Great Plains. Finally, an isolated low continues over southern Michigan and northern Ohio.

EXTENDED OUTLOOK:

A typical summer pattern will prevail through Wednesday as a cold front dips into Texas before stalling near or just north of Southeast Texas and the low pressure trough moves slowly east across the Plains. This, combined with day time heating, will keep a slight chance of rain in our picture through mid-week. We will trend back to a drier, hotter pattern for late this week as high pressure re-asserts itself with perhaps an influx of deeper moisture by late Saturday or Sunday bringing back a slight chance of isolated thundershowers.

TROPICAL OUTLOOK:Tropical Storm development is not likely at this time.
