Unsettled weather is expected today as showers and storms develop ahead of a cold front. A few storms could become strong to severe mainly in the afternoon/early evening with damaging winds, large hail and isolated tornadoes as the main risks.
A strong cold front will move through Southeast TX later today, bringing showers and thunderstorms ahead and along the boundary. Conditions continue to be favorable for severe weather, particularly for areas north of I-10. The greatest potential for strong to severe storms will be from late morning through early evening. If severe storms develop, all types of severe modes will be possible (damaging winds, large hail and isolated tornadoes). The severe weather risk will diminish from west to east this evening. Behind the front, breezy northwesterly winds are expected, with the strongest gusts along the coasts and coastal waters. Marine conditions will gradually deteriorate this evening, becoming hazardous likely after midnight.
Thanksgiving Week Outlook
Drier and below normal temperatures are expected after Tuesday. A system will move through the region Wednesday night into Thursday. Track and intensity are uncertain as well as dynamics (“what keeps storms alive”) as the system evolves over our area. For now, look for a cool day with partly to mostly cloudy skies and some light rain. Keep up to date on forecasts as they evolve over the next few days.
