.SHORT TERM [through Sunday]... Cool and dry weather conditions will prevail throughout the weekend as mid to upper level high pressure ridge dominates the local area. Light variable wind flow will continue with a few high clouds moving across SE Texas today. Maximum temperatures will stay in the 60s area wide this afternoon and minimums will range in the upper 30s to low 40s tonight, warmer along the coastal regions. An increase in cloud coverage along with a warming trend expected Sunday, as high pressure gradually shifts eastward. Onshore flow returns along with a slight increase in low level moisture, but will remain dry throughout the day. Maximum temperatures Sunday afternoon look to range in the upper 60s to lower 70s area wide. 24

.LONG TERM [Sunday Night through Saturday]... Weather will remain quiet for the first half of the upcoming week as high pressure gradually works its way eastward. This will allow for a return flow to resume resulting in a gradual warming trend (could be pushing mid to upper 70s for highs on Tuesday/Wednesday). A passing shortwave could bring some rain back into the area on Wednesday, but better rain chances look like they might set up for Thursday/Friday as a cold front enters the area. Models continue to offer different solutions regarding the strength/passage of this cold front which could result in either a dry/cool weekend (if the front sweeps on through) or clouds/rains (if the front hangs/lingers around). For this package, will continue to use a blend of models resulting in rain chances remaining in the forecast. Look for a little more forecaster confidence to come over the next several days as models hopefully come into better agreement. 42
