HIGH PRESSURE TO KEEP MOSTLY SUNNY SKIES, WARM AFTERNOONS AND COOL NIGHTS AROUND THROUGH THE WEEKEND

Mostly sunny to partly cloudy and warm this afternoon. High temperatures will be be in the low-80's. We should have easterly winds winds at 5-10 mph. It will be mostly clear and cool tonight. Low temperatures will range from the upper-60's in Galveston to the low-60's on the mainland. Expect southerly winds at 5-10 mph. Sunday should bring mostly sunny skies and warm temperatures. Highs will range from the low-80's in Galveston to the mid-80's on the mainland. Expect southerly winds at 5-10 mph. On Monday, we should see partly cloudy skies and warm afternoon temperatures. Highs will be in the low-80's. Winds will be from the south at 10-15 mph.

SYNOPSIS AND OUTLOOK:Our near ideal October weather will continue a while longer. We should see slightly warmer afternoon temperatures as high pressure aloft and at the surface controls our weather. Expect increasing clouds on Monday as stronger southerly winds appear.

NATIONAL OUTLOOK:

At the surface, high pressure extends from Kentucky to East Texas and northern Mexico. To the east, a cold front extends across central Cuba to a low over the Bahamas. To our north, an extended frontal boundary stretches all the way from Oregon across the Rockies and Plains to the Great Lakes. Further west, a deep low is located off the Oregon coast with a Pacific front extending southward off the California coast.

At the upper-levels, we are easing back into a slightly more amplified pattern with a low pressure ridge digging southwest over the Southeastern U.S. to the northeast Gulf of Mexico. Further west, a large high pressure ridge extends all the way from Texas to Arizona and north to the northern Plains. Further west, a deep low pressure trough is developing along the U.S. West Coast. LOOKING AHEAD

Good weather will prevail through the weekend. Early next week, the high pressure ridge over us should shift east while a low pressure trough develops to our west, will turn our winds around to the south by Monday with increasing clouds and moisture levels. Rain chances may appear by the middle of next week ahead a slow moving cold front.

TROPICAL OUTLOOK:

The remnants of former Tropical Depression #9 continue drifting east-southeast through the northwest Caribbean this morning. The National Hurricane Center now gives the system a 10% chance for re-developing over the coming 48-hours and a 20% chance for developing over the coming five days.

Meanwhile, the frontal low we saw over western Cuba yesterdays has continued to track east-northeast and is producing periods of gale force winds over parts of the Bahamas. The 1006 MB low is not expected to acquire tropical characteristics and should continue out into the Atlantic as a potent non-tropical system.

Otherwise, conditions remain unfavorable overall for any development in the Tropical Atlantic Basin and tropical cyclone development is not expected at this time.
