First of all, everyone be safe and have a great Thanksgiving! Second, here’s the final forecast in Central Texas so you can plan when to go out and throw the football!
On Thanksgiving morning in Central Texas, expect to wake up to rather warm temperatures. Immediately behind the front, winds will shift from SSW to NNW blowing colder drier air at the rate of 15-25MPH so hold on to the turkey pan around lunchtime! Expect a decent chance of precipitation along and behind the front early Thursday morning and Thursday afternoon, however since the 0c 850mb temperature line is well north of the area during the precipitation, it will be rain/drizzle instead of snow. The 850mb 0c line does push through the area Friday morning but this is long after precipitation has pushed off to the East and Southeast. Thursday evening, expect temperatures to drop to around 40 degrees by midnight and dew points below 30 degrees.
Sunrise should bring slightly cooler temps around from the upper 20’s to low 30’s depending on where you are located. West of I35 should be the cooler area and around I35 should be in the 30’s. Enjoy it while it lasts because the high moves to our SE and southerly flow returns on the backside of the high by mid day Saturday.
