Wx map continues to show the large vertically stacked surface to upper level cyclone over most of the Northeastern U.S. this morning. Closer to our region, a tight pressure gradient remains between this large low and surface high pressure over Texas, keeping slightly elevated winds inland, and 20-25 kts across the coastal waters.

Relaxing pressure gradient and subsiding winds expected later this morning through Sunday as the center of the surface high moves eastward over our region. Clear skies and below normal temperatures expected this weekend through Monday morning. By Monday afternoon, southeast return flow expected over Southeast Texas, and the remainder of the area by the evening hours. This will lead to a noticeably warming trend with lows only in the upper 40s to lower 50s by Tuesday morning, and afternoon highs reaching near 70 by Tuesday afternoon.

The northwest flow aloft providing this tranquil and below normal temperatures through Monday will become more southwesterly by late Tuesday into the remainder of the week, with intermittent upper level disturbances affecting the region. This will bring above normal temperatures, and at least a chance of showers Wednesday through Friday of next week.

Marine Discussion
Northwest winds of 20-25 kts with gusts to 30 kts this morning expected to subside quickly after daybreak, thus the Small Craft Advisory through 15z, or 9am still looks good and will continue. An onshore flow will resume by Monday as surface high pressure moves east of the area.
