SUNNY, BREEZY AND COOL TO MILD TODAY

PARTLY CLOUDY, BREEZY AND MILD TONIGHT

PARTLY CLOUDY BREEZY AND WARM TOMORROW

MOSTLY CLOUDY, BREEZY AND WARM ON SATURDAY WITH A CHANCE OF SHOWERS OR ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS

Sunny, breezy and cool to mild today. Highs will be in the upper-70's. Look for northeast to easterly winds at 10-15 mph with gusts to 20-mph.

Partly cloudy, breezy and mild tonight. Lows will be in the low-70's. Winds should be from the southeast at 10-15 mph with gusts to 20-mph.

Tomorrow should bring partly cloudy skies, breezy conditions and warm temperatures. Highs will range from the low-80's in Galveston to the mid-80's on the mainland. We anticipate southerly winds at 15-20 mph, with gusts to 25-mph.

On Saturday, look for mostly cloudy skies, breezy conditions and warm temperatures with a 20% chance of showers or isolated thunderstorms, increasing to 30% during the afternoon hours. Highs will be in the low-80's. Look for southerly winds at 15-25 mph, with gusts to 30-mph.

SHORT-TERM OUTLOOK:Sunny, cool conditions this morning will give way to mild temperatures this afternoon as northeast winds slowly veer around to the east. Brisk southeast winds will return tonight and tomorrow along with milder conditions and increasing clouds as high pressure over Texas moves east and low pressure begins to develop to our west.

NATIONAL OUTLOOK:This morning, high pressure sits over Texas while yesterday's cold front extends from the Mexican coast northeastward across the west central Gulf of Mexico to the Deep South, Ohio Valley and a low over Lake Michigan. A warm front extends eastward from that low across eastern Canada, while a surface low is located near Cape Cod. Closer to home, a warm front extends from the Red River across Oklahoma to a low over southeast Colorado. Meanwhile, a cold front is moving east across the Great Basin and Colorado with a snow producing low over southern Wyoming.

At the upper-levels, we are temporarily back to a somewhat more amplified flow with an upper-level low off the coast of Long Island, a weak high pressure ridge over the Southeastern U.S., and a short-wave trough moving east across the eastern Plains and Upper-Midwest.

EXTENDED OUTLOOK:

Cool to mild temperatures and sunny skies should prevail today with increasing clouds and warmer temperatures returning by tomorrow. This weekend looks to be quite breezy and cloudy with a decent chance of showers and thunderstorms as trough deepens over the West and then moves northeastward into the Plains. Another cold front should reach the coast by late Sunday, bringing somewhat cooler conditions back to our area to start the new week.

TROPICAL OUTLOOK:

Tropical storm development is not expected at this time.
