HOUSTON — We are starting this Thanksgiving in the 40s and 50s, which is about 20 degrees cooler compared to Wednesday. Expect a nice warm up throughout the day. By the afternoon temperatures climb to the mid to upper 70s.
Rain chances skyrocket Friday and Saturday thanks to a strong cold front and an area of low pressure colliding over our region. Friday will likely be a washout with temps in the lower 70s for highs.
Once the front comes through early Saturday, our temps will be stuck in the lower 60s for highs with widespread heavy rain, especially in the morning, with as much as 3 to 5 inches possible.
Given the dormant vegetation and the dry ground, we could see excessive runoff which could cause some localized flash flooding issues. Be mindful of that both Friday and Saturday.
Once the front clears the coast, skies will gradually clear out on Sunday with highs stuck in the upper 50s to lower 60s.
By Monday and Tuesday, our highs won't climb out of the mid 50s and overnight lows could get pretty close to freezing. Therefore those who live outside the urban core (Brenham, Tomball, The Woodlands, Conroe, Livingston, Cleveland, Hockley) could see temps drop to 32°F or lower so be thinking about protecting your plants early next week.
It's still a ways out but something to keep an eye on.
