SUNNY SKIES AND SEASONABLY COOL WEATHER IN THE PICTURE FOR THANKSGIVING DAY

MOSTLY SUNNY AND COOL TO MILD TODAY AND TOMORROW

Mostly sunny and cool to mild today. High temperatures will be in the upper-60's. We should have southwest winds at 10-15 mph. It will be mostly clear and chilly tonight. Low temperatures will range from the low-50's in Galveston to the mid-40's inland. Expect west to north winds at 5-10 mph. Thursday should bring mostly sunny skies and cool temperatures. Highs will be in the mid-60's. Expect northeast winds at 10-15 mph. On Friday, we should see sunny to partly cloudy skies and cool to mild temperatures. Highs will be in the upper-60's. Winds will be from the southeast at 5-10 mph.

SYNOPSIS AND OUTLOOK:Sunny skies and seasonably cool to mild temperatures will prevail through Thanksgiving as dry, cool air settles over Southeast Texas. A reinforcing push of cool air should move in early Thursday, keeping Thanksgiving on the cool side with a gradual warm-up in place beginning Friday.

NATIONAL OUTLOOK:

At the surface, our last cold front extends all the way from northwest Caribbean to a low in Florida and a pair of lows along the South and North Carolina coasts. To our north, two cold fronts are moving south through the Plains. The first, extends from the Pacific and Washington state across the Rockies to the Texas Panhandle and northeastward across Kansas to a low in eastern Nebraska. The second front, extends from western Canada to northern Nebraska and then eastward to Minnesota, the western Great Lakes and Canada. High pressure prevails over the Desert Southwest.

At the upper-levels, a low pressure trough is digging south-southwest over the eastern Plains, 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 shot of cooler air for Thanksgiving and a slow warm-up though the weekend as winds back around to the south and southwest. Although clouds and humidity levels will increase over the weekend, it appears as through rain chances will remain very low until late Sunday or 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.
