.SHORT TERM (Tonight through Friday night)... 
High pressure will continue to build into the region through the 
remainder of the week, providing dry northerly flow and mainly 
clear skies. Temperatures will remain some above normal, with low
temperatures ranging from upper 50s Brush Country to mid 60s along
the coast. Highs Friday will range from mid 80s Victoria
Crossroads and coastal areas to low 90s in the Rio Grande Valley.
&&
.LONG TERM (Saturday through Thursday)...
A large ridge of high pressure builds across the region Saturday 
into early next week. A shortwave will move over the top of the 
ridge during the day Saturday, but with very little moisture will 
not have much affect on our weather. In fact, expect very few clouds 
around Saturday with a light onshore flow and warm temperatures, a 
few degrees above normal. A few more clouds will be possible on 
Sunday. By Monday moisture will increase more into the region and 
with an upper level trough progressing through the western US and 
short waves moving through South Texas, will begin to see rain 
chances by Monday night. Will keep mainly slight chance PoPs through 
from Monday through the end of the period with significant 
discrepancies between forecast models. Will probably need higher 
chances at times, but the details are unclear at this point. 
Temperatures remain slightly above normal through the period.

.MARINE... 
With a surface ridge nearly overhead, wind will be light over the
waters tonight. Northeast wind at 10 knots or less can be expected
into Friday afternoon, before onshore flow at similar speeds
develops by evening and persists through the night. Light onshore
winds are expected this weekend. The onshore flow will become 
moderate to strong Monday through Wednesday with at least SCEC 
conditions possible over the bays and nearshore waters each 
afternoon.
