Forecast looks on track so far this evening. Some very light re-
turns are developing moving in from the SW (as noted on regional
radar)... But not seeing any mention of precipitation from obs in
that area just yet. This should be changing overnight as the ov-
erall moisture profile begins to deepen. All of this is occuring
ahead of the next cold front that is still slated to move across
se tx tomorrow. 41

dry air still holding on over the eastern areas but this is
changing with weak upglide producing a sct bkn deck around
3500-6000ft. Richer moisture streaming northward across the far
western gulf and into the psx area this evening as cold front
noses in through sps-lbb area at 00z. The cold front will continue
to march southward then begin to slow Sunday morning. This should
bring the front into the cll area 12-15z. Expecting light rain to
develop over the region Sunday with scattered showers mainly along
and elevated in the wake of the front. A narrow axis of deeper
moisture and weak instability will probably support a smattering
of thunderstorms from near cll down to sgr to psx. The front will
push south throughout the day with the mix ofVFR MVFR skies
abruptly becoming solid MVFR in the 1000-1800ft range with
the fropa. Will carry vcsh transitioning to ra for most sites
though cll sgr gls will be looking for vcts.

Improvement in MVFR ifr ceilings isn't likely for iah hou area
until Monday evening when low level dry air infiltrates.

strato cumulus is increasing across the area this afternoon as
moisture levels gradually increase. Pleasant day with current temps
generally ranging from the upper 60s to mid 70s across the area.

Change is in the way for tomorrow as a cold front is expected to
enter NW portions of the area early on Sunday and reach gls very
late in the day or in the evening. Showers are likely near and
also behind the front, especially across SW areas where the
deeper moisture will be present. Could see isolated thunderstorms
across southern areas. Temperatures are a challenge tomorrow as
they will fall behind the front. So, W NW areas will see early
morning MAX temps, where SE areas will warm some ahead of the
front, but there will also be abundant cloud cover which will
limit that warming. The front is likely to stall in our coastal
waters on Sunday night early Monday. Moisture levels are still
high in the wake of the shallow front and rain chances remain high
through Monday. A mid upper disturbance moves across Monday night
and we will see drier air push through the area behind that
disturbance. That drier air will be short lived as moisture levels
and a coastal surface trough return by early Wednesday as another
mid upper trough approaches. This sets the stage for more
widespread showers, especially across coastal and central areas.

Model guidance is in agreement that drier air will push in behind
the Wed wed night mid upper trough, so am expecting a dry
thanksgiving with temperatures warming into the 60s. Looks like
low rain chances and warmer temperatures for Fri Sat as a zonal
mid-level flow pattern is at least briefly in place over se
texas. 33
