A surface low near Fort Worth, a weak cold front and an upper-level trough tracking across the center of the country has contributed to quite breezy conditions locally, along with cloudy to partly cloudy skies and a slight chance for rain. Galveston has already reported 23-mph winds and 31-mph gusts this morning.

The cold front, which should move through the County this evening and tonight, will bring a brief spell of slightly cooler weather to the area for tomorrow, along with sunny skies.

This break from the humidity and warmer than normal temperatures, however, will rapidly give way to windy conditions again by Friday and Saturday, with rough seas, elevated tide levels, dangerous rip currents and a decent chance of thunderstorms by Saturday and Sunday. This spell will be associated with a deep low pressure trough expected to develop over the West and an associated cold front due to reach the coast sometime on Sunday.

On the plus side, this second front should bring noticeably cooler temperatures for the first couple of days of May.
