WEATHER OUTLOOK: After a Friday of record warm temperatures into the upper 80's and low 90's...a strong cold front will arrive in the Permian Basin Saturday morning. Behind the front winds will kick up to around 20 to 30 mph sustained with gusts up to 40 mph possible with areas of some blowing dust. Temperatures will drop and only be in the low to mid 60's in the afternoon and then drop to near freezing Saturday night into Sunday morning. Most areas of West Texas will avoid a freeze but the northern Permian Basin...southeast New Mexico and the upper Trans-Pecos may see temperatures touch freezing Sunday morning. All areas of West Texas should take freeze precautions with plants...outdoor pipes and pets early Sunday morning just to be safe. Only some cloud cover with the front as a dry forecast looks to stay in place for the weekend.
Seasonable weather looks to continue for Thanksgiving week with another cold front diving down on Wednesday keeping temperatures seasonable. A dry forecast is expected through the Thanksgiving holiday and the following "big shopping" weekend.
