First Day Of Winter

Well, we survived the Mayan Apocalypse.  I wonder what all those hoarders will do? 
Did you know that today is also the first day of Winter?  It "officially" began early this morning and it definitely felt like winter with the arrival of a very cold and dry air mass in Southeast Texas.  Even the sky looked cold:

I took this picture in Friendswood this afternoon while running some errands.  Most of these cirrus clouds were south of I-10 and if they remain through the rest of this afternoon, it could provide for a dramatic sunset.  The high pressure cell delivering the cool weather will gradually slide east during the weekend, so it will get progressively milder as southeast winds return. There is a slight chance for some rain late Sunday, but Christmas Eve and Christmas Day could be quite soggy.

TONIGHT: Mostly clear and cold. Lows north of I-10 below freezing for 2-4 hours. In town, lows fall to the mid 30s. Along the coast, lows in the low 40s. Light east winds 2-5 mph.

SATURDAY: Cold in the morning, but then becoming milder as temperatures rise to the mid to upper 60s.  Increasing afternoon cloudiness after mostly sunny skies early.  East winds becoming southeast 5-10 mph.


SUNDAY: Mostly cloudy with a chance of light rain in the morning and spotty showers by afternoon.  Warmer with highs in the mid to upper 70s with southerly winds 10-15 mph.
