Chilly start to the day, warmer weather in the afternoon

Temperatures drop into the mid-30s tonight, winds are calm, and skies are partly cloudy.

Partly cloudy skies will yield to mostly cloudy conditions with highs reaching the low-mid 80s Saturday afternoon as the front approaches Acadiana. Skies are mostly clear and winds will be strong out of the southwest around 10 to 20 miles per hour. There could be an isolated shower in the afternoon but the main line of rain is expected to move in overnight. Temperatures will stay in the 60s on Saturday afternoon and then quickly fall down into the 30s Saturday night with a light freeze possible northeast of San Angelo on Sunday morning. However, the northwesterly wind will gust to 30-40 miles per hour. Tuesday warms up a little more, but temperatures will still be cold in the morning in the upper 30s.

Skies should clear from west to east during the afternoon Thursday. That's in stark contrast to yesterday's run that indicated a low end rain chance Wednesday and Thanksgiving. It's looking like your Thanksgiving will see temperatures a bit below average as of now. Right now it looks dry but some clouds are expected with temperatures in the 50s. We must keep in mind La Nina is only one factor that can shape the winter season.
