DRY WEATHER AND SEASONABLY COOL TO MILD CONDITIONS LIKELY FOR THANKSGIVING WEEK

MOSTLY CLOUDY EARLY, BECOMING PARTLY CLOUDY AND COOL TODAY

MOSTLY SUNNY AND COOL TO MILD ON WEDNESDAY AND THANKSGIVING DAY

Mostly cloudy early, becoming partly cloudy and cool today. High temperatures will be in the mid-60's. We should have northerly winds at 10-15 mph. It will be partly cloudy to mostly clear and chilly tonight. Low temperatures will range from the upper-40's in Galveston to the mid-40's inland. Expect westerly winds at 5-10 mph. Wednesday should bring mostly sunny skies and cool to mild temperatures. Highs will be in the upper-60's. Expect southwest winds at 10-15 mph. On Thursday, we should see sunny skies and cool to mild temperatures. Highs will be in the upper-60's. Winds will be from the northeast at 5-10 mph.

SYNOPSIS AND OUTLOOK:Cloudy skies will gradually give way to partly cloudy conditions as the upper-level trough now moving through the area tracks east. Meanwhile, dry, cool air is flowing into Southeast Texas behind a cold front that has moved deep into the Gulf of Mexico. This should set the stage for a near ideal Thanksgiving week, with seasonably cool to mild temperatures and rain-free conditions.

NATIONAL OUTLOOK:

At the surface, a cold front extends all the way from northern Mexico to the Gulf of Mexico and then northeast to a low in North Carolina. The front then continues on northeastward through New England. High pressure is located behind the front from northern California to Colorado. Elsewhere, a cold front and low is located over the Great Lakes, while far to the north a cold front is pushing south through the Canadian Plains.

At the upper-levels, a low pressure trough is moving eastward across the Plains and the center of the country, while high pressure ridges are noted along both the East and West Coasts.

LOOKING AHEAD

Seasonably cool, dry weather is on tap for the first half of this week, with a gradual warm-up beginning around Thanksgiving as winds back around to the south and southwest. Although clouds and humidity levels will increase by this weekend, it appears as through rain chances will remain very low until early next week.

TROPICAL OUTLOOK:

The Tropical Atlantic Basin continues to be quiet overall with no active tropical cyclones and tropical development not expected over the coming 48-hours.
