    Cooler for the Holiday Parade and Lighting Ceremony

    A front will slip to the south of San Antonio Friday evening, allowing cooler air to make its presence known for the Ford Holiday River Parade and Lighting Ceremony.

    Winds will kick up from the northeast into the evening hours Friday averaging 10 to 20 mph. Temperatures will fall through the 60s.

    While any heavy rainfall and thunderstorms will have shifted to the south of the city by parade start time, there is still the risk of sprinkles or a light shower for evening activities.


    The hour-long parade Friday along San Antonio's River Walk begins around 7:00 p.m. CST with activities continuing until 10:00 p.m.

    Enough dry air will punch through to bring clearing later Friday night and a sunny day on Saturday.

    As a storm drops southeastward from the Rockies to the southern Plains early next week, another period of clouds and perhaps showers could visit the region from later Sunday into Monday.

    At least with a breeze and drier air moving into the region Friday night, people should not have to worry about running into dense fog patches on their way home.

    A clear sky overhead, light winds and moist air near the ground allowed locally dense fog to form in central and eastern Texas Thanksgiving morning. A multiple-vehicle pile-up occurred along I-10 near Beaumont. There were multiple injuries. Two people died as a result of the crash according to local television station, KBMT.
