We know there were plenty of you out there complaining about the warm weather. It nearly hit 90 a week ago and it is November after all. Well, you got what you wanted and then some in the form of freezing overnight temperatures and even a trace of snow (yes, snow), the earliest the white stuff has ever been recorded in Houston.
The deep freeze will begin to subside as we head into the weekend but temperatures will remain cool through Sunday. After a very chilly Thursday morning, temperatures will rebound to around 60 degrees under sunny skies. The real winner of the week might be Friday.
If you are taking extended time off for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday, Friday is your day to get outside. Expect sunny skies and temperatures in the mid to upper 60s. It's going to be a stunner. Saturday will be about the same, but clouds will begin increasing by lunchtime and the afternoon will likely be pretty cloudy ahead of another modest cool front. Expect similar conditions on Sunday with cloudy skies and cool weather.
As we continue our look ahead to Thanksgiving, there is a chance of a fairly wet Turkey Day ahead of another approaching front. Right now, the forecast is calling for highs around 70 degrees and about a 50 percent chance of rain, but we are still a full week away and things can certainly change a lot between now and then.
