Brisk Start to Wednesday, Downright Cold Thanksgiving Morning
We're waking up to temperatures similar to yesterday, only now there's a gusty north wind hitting you in the face as you step out the door. You'll want to grab the jacket and keep it with you today. We'll try to make it back into the 60s this afternoon, with full blown sun and wind calming by the evening.
We're in for a cold one tonight! Many of us get awfully close to touching the freezing mark briefly by Thanksgiving morning, so patchy frost is likely across most of the Brazos Valley before the sun takes care of that quickly Thursday. Afternoon highs will be more comfortable with plenty more sunshine in the way - into the mid 60s.
Friday and the weekend will be more mild than the next 36 hours or so. Highs in the low to mid 70s headline the weekend, with mildly chilly starts (at least compared to Thanksgiving) in the upper 40s and low 50s. You guessed it - more sunshine is on the way for the weekend, not only for us locally, but across the whole state. Travel is looking good from now through Sunday, save some gusty winds early today. Happy and safe Thanksgiving wishes to you and yours!
