HOUSTON –- It’s going to be a cold, wet start to what will eventually be a beautiful Thanksgiving week in the Houston area, according to KHOU 11 News Meteorologist Brooks Garner.
Temperatures were in the upper-30s and low-40s across southeast Texas early Monday morning. There’s an 80-percent chance for rain with a forecast high of only 43 degrees.
After a second batch of rain moves through this afternoon, the rain chances will start to decrease in the overnight hours, but it will remain very cold.
"After one or two in the morning, the College Station area could have sleet," said Garner. "We're not expecting any issues with freezing rain closer to Houston, however."
Tuesday the rain chance drops to 60 percent.
By Wednesday and Thursday the rain will be gone, but things will remain chilly with daytime temperatures in the 40s and 50s. Early Thanksgiving morning the temperature will be around 29 degrees.
The cool temps and clear skies continue through the weekend.
