SHORT -TERM OUTLOOK:Mostly cloudy skies will prevail today with a chance of showers or thunderstorms as an upper-level disturbance moves across Texas and a frontal boundary remains stalled just inland over Southeast Texas. Rain chances will increase tonight and early tomorrow as the upper-level low to our west moves into the Plains, followed by clearing skies tomorrow afternoon as drier air moves into the area.

NATIONAL OUTLOOK:This morning, a mostly stationary cold front extends from northern Mexico to a low just west of Brownsville. The front then continues northeastward over Southeast Texas and the Deep South to the Atlantic and a low near Long Island. Elsewhere, high pressure sits over Nebraska, while far to the west a slow-moving cold front is near the Pacific Northwest coast.

At the upper-levels, we continue to see a more amplified flow with a high pressure over Florida and the Southeastern U.S., an upper-low and associated trough over northern Illinois and the western Great Lakes, another upper-level low and trough over the Desert Southwest and a high pressure ridge nosing northwestward across California and the Great Basin region to the northern Rockies and Plains.

LOOKING AHEAD

Relatively mild temperatures will continue with mostly cloudy skies and a chance of shower and thunderstorm activity prevailing through early Thursday as the upper-level low pressure trough to the west shifts slowly northeast and the stalled cold front remains over Southeast Texas. We should see clearing skies later tomorrow into Friday, with rain chances appearing again Friday night as another cold front pushes through the area.

TROPICAL OUTLOOK:

Tropical development is not currently expected in the Atlantic Basin.
