COOL EVENING LIKELY FOR TRICK OR TREATERS'

PARTLY CLOUDY TO MOSTLY SUNNY AND COOL TODAY WITH CHILLY CONDITIONS LIKELY FOR SATURDAY

Partly cloudy early, becoming partly cloudy, breezy and cool later today. High temperatures will be in the upper-70's. We should have northerly winds winds at 10-15 mph, increasing to 15-25 mph this afternoon. It will be clear, breezy and quite cool tonight. Low temperatures will range from the mid-50's in Galveston to near 50 on the mainland. Expect northerly winds at 15-25 mph. Saturday should bring sunny skies and chilly temperatures. Highs will be in the mid-60's. Expect northeast winds at 10-15 mph. On Sunday, we should see mostly sunny skies and cool weather. Highs will be in the low-70's. Winds will be from the east at 10-15 mph.

SYNOPSIS AND OUTLOOK:A reinforcing surge of cooler air will move into southeast Texas later today, bringing the coolest weather of the season by tomorrow morning. Weekend weather will be on the cool, sunny side with clouds increasing on Monday

NATIONAL OUTLOOK:

At the surface, a cold front is moving south deep into Texas this morning with a low located on the eastern end of the front over northern Mississippi. High pressure is building south over the Plains behind this front. Elsewhere, yesterday's front extends eastward across the central Gulf and Florida to a low southeast of South Carolina. A stationary frontal boundary is located over the central and northern Rockies, while a Pacific cold front is approaching the California coast.

At the upper-levels, we see a modest low pressure trough digging south along the Mississippi Valley with a sharp high pressure ridge over the Rockies. Further west, a deep upper-low and trough is developing in the Pacific off the West Coast.

LOOKING AHEAD

The coolest weather of the season will move in this evening with chilly conditions likely on Saturday. Sunday and Monday should see a slow warm up, with increasing clouds and rain chances likely as we move through the coming week.

TROPICAL OUTLOOK:

Halloween is definitely not scary in the Tropical Atlantic Basin. While thunderstorms linger along a trough to the north of the Virgin Islands, development is no longer expected from this system. Elsewhere, the region remains remarkably quiet and tropical cyclone development is unlikely over the next few days.
