Highs in the 50s and lows in the 30s are creeping into the local weather forecast as the area gets cooler this weekend.

As of Nov. 26, the National Weather Service’s (NWS) Austin/San Antonio projects a cold front to enter the area Friday. Showers and thunderstorms are also expected.

Weather for Thanksgiving Day was mild ahead of the cold front. The forecast for Friday, Nov. 27, indicates highs could still reach the 64 in the morning before the area gets chilly.

“A strong cold front later on Friday and an upper level disturbance this weekend will bring showers and mainly isolated thunderstorms along with below normal temperatures,” said the NWS Austin/San Antonio Office. “The showers and thunderstorms will end from west to east on Sunday with well below normal temperatures next week.”

A 60% chance of thunderstorms is forecast throughout Friday by the Taylor Texas Weather Network. Lows are expected to dip to 53 Friday night.

Saturday includes a 90% chance of showers with highs near 60 and lows in the bottom 40s. A drier cold front is scheduled for Sunday with sunny skies and highs in the 60s before turning partly cloudy at night with lows in the upper 30s.

Monday is expected to be sunny as well. However, high temperatures are not expected to escape the mid 50s before dipping to around 30 Monday night.
