Weather is fairly quiet this evening. There is a cold front moving across the south central plains and Texas. Cooler weather will be pushing into the southeast on Monday. Highs Monday will be in the single digits and teens in the northern plains. There will be some snow around the Great Lakes. There will be rain in Seattle, along the eastern seaboard and the southeast.

Houston will be mostly sunny and breezy. Highs will be in the 60s. Tuesday morning will be cooler, in the 30s. Highs on Tuesday will be close to 60. The weather will be cool in the mornings and mild in the afternoons through the week. Over the weekend, the humidity returns and temperatures warm up.

The word for soccer is fĂștbol, pronounced FOOT-bowl. But if you are talking about football, as in Super Bowl, it is fĂștbol americano, pronounced FOOT-bowl ah-mare-ee-cah-NO.

Good news for those of you who may have been worried about the big chicken head that was missing from the cadillac in the Bandera Church's chicken. No, it didn't go to the slaughterhouse like its brothers. According to the San Antonio Express-News, it was stolen on New Year's Eve. The locals were quite upset and many just couldn't enjoy their meals the same way. Fortunately, just last week, a 47 year old stocker at the local Super S, happened to spot it in a garbage bin outside a Salvation Army in Kerrville (25 miles away). The owner of the Church's said she and her husband had created the chicken car back in 1994. She gave the stocker a $500 check as a reward. He was glad to have it and planned to use it to pay property taxes.

Well, tomorrow is the big day...but I just can't figure out why I haven't received any Groundhog Day cards yet. Usually my mailbox is just stuffed with them by now.

Don't worry. That won't get me down because there are so many exciting things happening tomorrow. First of all, there is the free Groundhog Day festivities at The Weather Museum. Bring your little ones for a morning of free fun. There will be a couple animals from the zoo. Then in the evening, it's the Groundhog Day gala at the Houston zoo. Proceeds will benefit the education programs offered by the The John C. Freeman Weather Museum and The Weather Research Center. It is going to be wonderful night!

Based on my analysis, I think Punxsatawney Phil will not see his shadow--therefore he will not be frightened and run back in his hole and winter will be over. You heard it here first!

Have a terrific week everyone!
