Mostly Cloudy with Scattered Showers Overnight…How Much Rain?

Showers to Increase for Thanksgiving Day

A cold front raced through the Crossroads during the predawn hours, clearing skies and inducing coastal showers. The front lowered temperatures some ten to fifteen degrees, but Gulf moisture overrunning the cool air quickly produced cloudy skies. Still, the lower layers of the atmosphere remain quite dry, with relative humidity in the 20 to 30 percent range. Rain chances begin overnight, but the dry air will take some time to saturate and allow precipitation to reach the ground. Scattered to numerous showers will occur from Thanksgiving through Friday and early Saturday, when a stronger cold front arrives midday. That system will clear out the moisture and leave chilly mornings with mild afternoons through midweek.
