SHORT TERM OUTLOOK:Mostly cloudy skies, breezy conditions, mild temperatures and periods of fog will prevail through tomorrow as southerly winds bring somewhat warmer air back into Southeast Texas.

NATIONAL OUTLOOK

This morning, high pressure is centered far to our east over Florida. Meanwhile, to our north, a cold front is sliding south into North Central Texas with the elongated frontal boundary stretching all the way from the coast of British Columbia southeastward across the northern Rockies and western Plains to North Texas before bending back northeastward across the Mid-South, Ohio and eastern Canada. Attached lows are found along this front over Washington state, Wyoming, southern Colorado, North Texas and Ontario Province in Canada. Meanwhile, a Pacific cold front is pushing east from southern Colorado, New Mexico and northwest Mexico. A second, Pacific front is also moving east from eastern Oregon, Nevada and central California with an attached low over the central Sierra Nevadas. Finally, an isolated low is seen in the Pacific west of Portland, Oregon.

At the Upper-levels, we are definitely back to a more zonal west to east flow with high pressure in the Atlantic, a sharp short-wave trough moving east across Canada and the Upper-Midwest, a high pressure ridge over the central and northern Rockies and a developing low pressure trough along the West Coast.

EXTENDED OUTLOOK:Mostly cloudy skies, breezy conditions, some fog and mild temperatures should prevail through Saturday as south to southwest winds continue over our area. A weak cold front will reach southeast Texas by late Sunday into Monday, possibly stalling on or near the coast. This will bring a chance of rain to our area to end the week and begin the new week. Looking further ahead, rainy conditions should prevail for most of next week as a series of troughs and upper-level disturbances move eastward across the country. Clouds and periods of rain will keep temperatures slightly cooler for most of next week.
