No Comments Local News

Given the limited or reduced staffing many organizations may have this week and the anticipated increase in travel for the holiday, we wanted to provide a brief update on the forecast for the upcoming Thanksgiving week.

Overview: Dry weather with gradually warming temperatures will start the week, but an approaching frontal system will bring a risk for a few strong to severe thunderstorms on Tuesday and Tuesday night. Expect the front to clear the region during the day on Wednesday, with dry weather resuming Thanksgiving Day. Low rain chances return to the forecast this weekend as a series of cold fronts move across the region, but severe weather is not currently expected during this time.
Hazards/Timing: Thunderstorms capable of damaging winds, isolated tornadoes (Tuesday and
                                      Tuesday night)
Location:       Severe weather will be possible across most of Southeast Texas Tuesday and
                           Tuesday night

The combination of a cold front and an upper level disturbance pushing across the area Tuesday evening into Wednesday could result in strong to severe storms. These storms could affect parts of the Hill Country including the Austin metro area and vicinity. Main weather hazards for the period are expected to be damaging winds and localized flash flooding.
