high pressure centered over mizzou will slide southeast towards the middle-

across the S rockies into the S plains.
Light northerly winds should continue to night with min temperatures Thursday
morning in the low 30s north of Houston and upper 30s/low 40s

upper low passes north of the area with front Sat morning. Only

cover tonight. Updated forecast has been sent.
