Through Tonight: Skies remain clear into the evening. High clouds trickle in as we head into the overnight, and we should tend toward mostly cloudy by dawn. A nice-looking sunrise? Certainly possible. Lows end up in the upper 30s to mid-40s. Winds are light after sunset.

Tomorrow (Thursday): We may see some sun early, but the day is largely cloudy as temperatures head to the mid-50s and around 60 for highs. Showers and some light rain arrive in the area late afternoon into early evening. This is driven by a cold front pushing through with a little wave of low pressure on it. Light rain continues into the early night, and it’s not impossible that a few conversational wet snowflakes mix in well north and west as it ends, and temperatures drift toward lows in the 30s.
Electric November: The Southwest U.S. monsoon was on the weak side this year. Perhaps as something of a consolation prize, a number of energetic lightning storms fired up across that region this morning. More are expected eastward to Texas through the day as a disturbance passes. Below are a couple of the cool shots that came out of it!
