A potent low pressure moves from East Texas late Saturday across the Southeast Sunday and Monday. Rain by Sunday night (heavy at times Sunday night) continuing into Monday morning, then MUCH colder air arrives Monday night with a snow flurry possible.

Forecast Discussion

Happy Thanksgiving! Please make good decisions to keep your family and our community safe and healthy.

High pressure holds in the Eastern U. S. for one more day. Friday looks almost as pleasant as Thursday.

A secondary, dry front moves through early Friday morning from west to east. Temperatures Saturday will be another step cooler with some early clouds.

More "exciting" weather comes early next week. Low pressure builds in East Texas Saturday night. It moves northeast across the Southeastern U. S. Sunday and Monday. Very cold air will wrap in behind this low Monday. Sunday will be cloudy with rain developing late Sunday afternoon. Rain increases Sunday night, and showers linger into Monday morning. High temperatures Monday will be in the morning.

Then comes the cold Monday night. Even a snow flurry could make it across the mountains into the Foothills. Tuesday is the coldest day since last winter. Wednesday has chilly temperatures with few clouds.
