Cruise Control

It's been a lovely day on Galveston Island and all across Southeast Texas.  Not record warmth, but warm enough - a far cry from how the month started.  Bush topped out at 79° (three shy of the record), Hobby at 80°, also three short of the record and Galveston saw a high of 73° (four degrees off the record).  Now it looks like the front which I anticipated sagging through here tomorrow may not actually make it after all.  So we can expect more days like this.
When will our next change arrive?  Probably not until late Sunday.  That's when the southwest flow aloft will allow a few upper-level disturbances to trigger periods of showers.  Until then, enjoy the terrific weather that most of the rest the country wishes they could have.
TONIGHT: Fair skies early, with patchy fog developing by sunrise.  Lows in the low 60s with light southerly winds 2-5 mph.

FRIDAY: Partly cloudy skies after early morning fog lifts. Highs climb to the upper 70s with south winds 5-10 mph.

SATURDAY: Areas of dense morning fog and low clouds, then mostly to partly cloudy skies.  Morning lows in the upper 50s followed by highs in the mid 70s. Southeast winds 5-10 mph.
