South winds will shift to the north this afternoon as a cold front pushes south through the region. The front will cross the Red River early this afternoon, then exit the southern-most counties early this evening. Skies should remain mostly cloudy across the southeastern-most counties, with partly cloudy skies elsewhere.
Outside of a few modest cold front Friday night/Saturday morning this Thanksgiving Weekend, look for near, or slightly above seasonal temperatures with no rainfall expected. Off and on breezy conditions will occur with highs in the 60s and 70s.
