CLEAR AND COOL
Temperatures are cold this morning in the 30s, and it will be a slow warm-up through the afternoon. High temperatures today will climb into the middle and upper 60s under mostly sunny skies. A few high clouds are possible, but sun will be dominating the forecast this week!
Winds today are shifting back around to the south as we begin to filter in moist air from the Gulf of Mexico. Humidity will rise slightly, but the difference in how it feels outside when it comes to mugginess will be minimal. What will change is our temperatures… with higher humidity, temperatures will stay milder overnight. Lows will fall into the 40s and lower 50s tomorrow morning with highs rebounding into the mid 70s Tuesday afternoon.
SLIM CHANCE RAIN
Our next cold front is set to arrive on Tuesday night. Rain chances will remain very low, but there will be enough precipitable water in the air to result in a few isolated showers late Tuesday night until Wednesday morning.
Behind the front, high temperatures will fall back into the mid 60s Wednesday.
TEMPS HEAT UP
We’re heating up for the second half of the week! Thanksgiving looks beautiful with calm winds. Temperatures will be chilly in the low 40s Thursday morning then highs will climb into the low 70s. Warming will continue through the weekend with highs in the upper 70s and low 80s by Saturday.
