A cold front will move across the area today bringing a line of showers and thunderstorms to the region. Some storms could bring some gusty winds and brief heavy rains. The front will continue southward and then stall over the Gulf waters later this evening.
Overnight, skies will start to clear over the northern sections. Coastal areas will remain cloudy. For Thanksgiving, most of the precipitation will stay over the Gulf of Mexico where the front stalls. More sunshine is likely for the inland areas on Thanksgiving, with more clouds to the south. Highs will reach the mid 70s.
The front will then start retreating to the north on Friday. A deep upper tough over the central U.S. will induce a low pressure area to develop and strengthen along the Texas coast and move northeastward. Rains will return on Friday, continue through Saturday and end Sunday. There's a potential for some heavy rainfall totals over the 2-3 day period. Areas just east of where the low tracks also has the chance for some severe storms.
Blustery weather will push in after the low moves northeast. Expect some of the coldest weather we've seen in months to push in for early next week.
