HOUSTON -- Bitter-cold temperatures kicked off our Thanksgiving morning, which has been our coldest start to the year, but this afternoon is going to warm up a bit, giving us a nice pleasant Turkey Day, KHOU 11 News Meteorologist Chita Johnson said.
Lows kicked off in the 20s north of town and in the 30s for other parts, and afternoon highs are expected to top off in the mid-to lower 50s.
Black Friday shoppers will have to battle temps in the upper-30s while they are bargain-hunting, but afternoon temps will rise to the lower-60s. The weekend will be nice and clear with highs in the mid-60s.
High temps will continue to rise daily, reaching the lower-70s by next week, with the chance for showers returning to the forecast by Monday.
