By morning, we'll once again see some fog developing across southeast Texas, with the best chance south of I-10. So if you're headed downtown for the Holiday Parade, don't surprised if the high-flying hot air balloons fly a little low. The festivities kick off at 9 am, which is about when the fog of the past few days has lifted, so it could be close. Either way, you may have to dress in layers because it will be cool in the morning in the 50s, but warm quickly to the mid 70s when the parade winds down.
Hurry home to root for the Texans who travel to Detroit to take on the Lions who always play tough on Turkey Day. Whatever your plans, I hope you take some time to reflect on your many blessings. Once you start naming them, you may find it tough to stop. May your day be filled with family, friends and food.
