PARTLY CLOUDY, BREEZY AND COOL TONIGHT WITH A CHANCE OF SHOWERS OR THUNDERSTORMS--SOME STORMS COULD REACH SEVERE LEVELS

MOSTLY SUNNY BREEZY AND MILD TOMORROW

MOSTLY SUNNY, BREEZY AND WARMER ON THURSDAY

Mostly cloudy early, becoming partly cloudy and mild today with a 40% chance of showers or thunderstorms this afternoon. Highs will range from near 80 on the Island to the low-80's inland. Look for northerly winds at 5-15 mph.

Partly cloudy, breezy and cool tonight with a 60% chance of showers or thunderstorms overnight--some storms could reach severe levels. Look for northerly winds at 10-15 mph with gusts to 20-mph. Lows will range from the mid-60's in Galveston to the low-60's inland.

Tomorrow should bring mostly sunny skies and mild temperatures. Highs will be in the low-80's. We anticipate northwest winds at 10-15 mph with gusts to 20-mph tomorrow night.

On Thursday, look for mostly sunny skies and warmer. Highs will be in the mid-80's. Look for southerly winds at 15-20 mph.

SHORT-TERM OUTLOOK: A weak cold front stalled near the coast and an upper-level disturbance moving across Texas will bring us another shot at rain this afternoon and evening. A stronger push of cooler air should move in tonight, bringing sunny skies, mild temperatures and lower humidity levels for tomorrow.

NATIONAL OUTLOOK:This morning, a semi-stationary cold front extends from near Del Rio to near Galveston and then on to south Louisiana and a low in northern Alabama. The front then bends eastward across North Carolina and then northward over the Atlantic to a low in eastern Canada. A second low and warm front is located east of this front in the Atlantic. Meanwhile to our north a cold front is moving into North Texas with the front extending north-northeastward to a low in Wisconsin. A warm front extends east from that low across the Great Lakes. Elsewhere, high pressure is found over Utah.

At the Upper-levels, we continue in a modestly amplified pattern with a high pressure ridge bulging northward off the East Coast to New England. to the west, an upper-level low is seen over northern Minnesota with a broad low pressure trough digging south and southwest across the middle of the country, with a short wave trough dipping southeastward into northern Texas. Finally, a high pressure ridge is found along the West Coast.

EXTENDED OUTLOOK:

A second, slightly more robust push of cooler air is moving into Texas this morning along with an upper-level disturbance and may give us another shot at rain later today, followed by clearing skies, along with somewhat cooler and drier air for the later part of the week.

TROPICAL OUTLOOK:

Tropical storm development is not expected at this time.
