From Sean Bellafiore:
After high temperatures Friday rose into the lower and middle 80s, a sharp change in the weather is arriving with a cold front during the midday hours Saturday. Until that front arrives, temperatures will very warm to start the day Saturday with morning lows in the middle and upper 60s, very close to the average high temperature for this time of year (67°).
The cold front will be moving through Central Texas from the north to the south during the morning hours. The front is expected to be halfway through our area by 11 AM, clearing Central Texas by 2 PM. Ahead of the front, *morning* high temperatures may climb into the middle and upper 70 (with isolated 80° readings to the southeast), but behind the front temperatures will be dropping as strong north winds increase. Sustained winds Saturday may be as high as 30 MPH with wind gusts approaching 40 MPH. Temperatures, under mostly sunny skies, will fall from the 70s into the lower and middle 60s by sunset with morning lows Sunday falling into the middle and upper 30s.
Abundant sunshine takes hold of Central Texas Sunday afternoon with relatively calm winds returning too. Afternoon highs Sunday will only climb into the upper 50s and lower 60s. By Monday morning, with calm winds and clear skies, temperatures may drop to near freezing across much of the area in the lower 30s. Partly cloudy skies are in the forecast Monday and Tuesday as afternoon highs climb into the middle 60s Monday and lower 70s Tuesday, but another cold front will move through Tuesday afternoon. Tuesday's front may bring with it a few isolated showers, but most of the area should stay dry.
The air behind Tuesday's cold front won't be terribly cool, but will provide us with just enough cool air to keep temperatures in the lower 60s Wednesday. Thanksgiving should be pleasant across the area with morning temperatures in the lower 40s while afternoon highs climb into the middle 60s with abundant sunshine. Temperatures will begin to warm back up though for Black Friday with highs returning to near 70°.
