MORE FREEZING WEATHER - Temperatures are in the low to mid 20s this morning with a singular reading of 17° out in Graham. DFW was at 26° as of 5:05, which is 5° below our record low for November 14. The deep, cold core trough that has been parked in Texas for the past couple of days will finally begin to lift over the next 24 hours. It will be another cold day with highs in the mid 40s.
However, with the cold trough gone, we will start feeling warmer by tomorrow afternoon. Although we will start the day below freezing, we will warm to the mid 50s Thursday afternoon with mostly sunny skies. Warmer weather will continue through the weekend.
FRIDAY AND THE WEEKEND - Look for a very pleasant weekend overall with highs in the upper 60s and lows in the 40-45° range for Friday and Saturday. A cold front comes through Sunday morning, and we might see a few scattered showers from that. Clouds will increase Sunday, and highs will remain in the mid 50s.
THANKSGIVING WEEK - The weather looks dry Monday and Tuesday with highs mostly in the upper 50s to low 60s with a mix of sun and clouds. Global models continue to advertise a low in Southern Texas that will bring rain to much of North and Central Texas on Thanksgiving eve, one of the busiest days of travel of the year. Then, Thanksgiving Day and Black Friday look dry again with a mix of sun and clouds... See the Texas Weather Discussion Video for more details.
TROPICS - The disturbance near Puerto Rico is not expected to develop. The rest of the Atlantic Basin remains quiet.
