SHORT-TERM OUTLOOK:A low pressure trough to our west is moving east into Texas, as a weak cold front and surface low moves into the area. This will lead to cloudy skies and a continuing chance for showers today. A Pacific cold front will reach the coast afternoon and tomorrow night, bringing windy and cooler weather to our area for Thursday and Friday along with sunny skies.

NATIONAL OUTLOOK

This morning, a surface low is located near Corpus Christi, while a weak cold front moves east into the northwest Gulf of Mexico and an attached warm front pushes north towards the upper-Texas coast. Meanwhile, to our west, a more vigorous Pacific cold front is advancing across West Central Texas with the front extending south from a low over the eastern Panhandle to extreme northern Mexico. To our east, a mostly stationary frontal boundary extends from just south of the Florida Panhandle to the Atlantic with an attached low near Augusta, Georgia. Also, over the East, high pressure is centered near Norfolk, Virginia. Meanwhile, to the northwest, an elongated and slow-moving cold front extends all the way from northern California to a low near Winnipeg, Canada. Finally, areas of high pressure are found over northern Nevada and the Pacific west of California.

At the Upper-Levels, we are shifting back to a more zonal west to east flow. with a modest low pressure trough in the Atlantic east Canada and a weak high pressure ridge bulging northwestward from Florida to the Appalachians and Midwest. Meanwhile, closer to home, a closed low is moving slowly east-northeast over West Texas with an associated trough digging south from the central Plains to northwest Mexico. Finally, high pressure is in the Pacific west of California.

EXTENDED OUTLOOK:

Cloudy skies and showers will persist today as an upper-level trough moves across Texas and a surface low moves northeast over the western Gulf of Mexico. A cold front will reach the coast tonight, leading to sunny skies, windy conditions, and quite cool conditions tomorrow and Friday. Temperatures will begin to moderate some on Saturday and Sunday with increasing clouds and a slight chance of rain by Christmas Eve as a trough moves across the northern Plains.
