Tomorrow should bring mostly cloudy skies, breezy conditions and mild temperatures with a 70% chance of showers or thunderstorms. High temperatures will be in the low to mid-70's. We anticipate southeast winds at 10-15 mph, with gusts to 25-mph.

On Thursday, look for mostly cloudy skies and mild temperatures with a 50% chance of showers and thunderstorms. Low temperatures will be in the mid-60's with highs near 70. Expect southeast winds at 10-15 mph.

SHORT-TERM OUTLOOK:Partly to mostly cloudy skies and mild temperatures will prevail today with a chance of showers or isolated thunderstorms this afternoon and tonight as low pressure deepens to our north and west. Increasing moisture levels, weak upper-level disturbances and a slow-moving cold front will contribute to increasing clouds and a better chance of rain tomorrow.

NATIONAL OUTLOOK:This morning, a slow-moving cold front extends all the way from the Gulf of California to lows over eastern New Mexico and Oklahoma. The front then continues on northeastward to a low over eastern Iowa. From there, the front transitions to a warm front over the Great Lakes, eastern Canada and the Mid-Atlantic states region. Meanwhile, in the West, high pressure is in control from Nevada to Montana.

At the Upper-Levels, we seeing a more amplified pattern, with high pressure over the Atlantic and the eastern Gulf of Mexico. Meanwhile, to the west, a deepening low pressure trough extends southwestward from Canada to Southern California, Arizona and Baja California.

EXTENDED OUTLOOK:

Looking ahead, Rain chances will increase tonight through Wednesday and Thursday with a good chance of rain on Wednesday as the upper-level low pressure trough to the west, brings southwest winds aloft and embedded disturbances move across our area. Another cold front will move into Texas on Wednesday, before stalling near the coast. Currently, the front and the bulk of the rain is expected to be a little north of the Galveston area, though we cannot rule out a good chance for showers and thunderstorms from Wednesday into Thursday. Rain chances will decrease some for Friday and Saturday with rain prospects ramping up some on Sunday and Monday as another weak cold front sags into the state.

TROPICAL OUTLOOK:Tropical development is not expected at this time.
