Tropical Atlantic and Pacific are quiet.

Cutoff low spinning over central US is bringing wintry weather to the nation's mid-section. There are winter storm warnings and advisories in effect this evening for portions Kansas, Nebraska and Iowa.

On Monday, highs will be in the 30s and 40s for the northwest, central and northern plains, parts of the midwest and northeast. Ahead of the front, highs will be in the 50s to 70s. California will be in the 50s and 60s. There will be some storms from Texas to Mississippi. Look for some cold rain in the northwest and Missouri.

Houston, there will be some showers and thunderstorms in the morning. Then it will be dry and pleasant for a few days....lows in the 40s and highs in the low 70s. Tuesday and Wednesday mornings will be in the low 40s in spots...coolest so far this fall. Another round of showers and thunderstorms next Sunday.

Only one more day to answer my poll...who is your favorite Sesame Street character...right now Cookie Monster has a strong lead.

Megan and I went to see 2012. Even one of our priests, Fr. Reggie, said he wanted to see it...but he was careful to point out it was because he heard the special effects were so amazing. And, they were!!! It was a very intense and entertaining and at times a thought provoking movie...but for me it was not because of the Mayan prophecy. Plot was very similar to the apocolyptic movies along the order of Meteor, Day After Tomorrow etc. I loved that John Cusack was the lead. I have always liked him. The movie was entertaining and worth seeing for fun. Now here is Megan's review: awesome, loved the special effects, loved John Cusack's character in the movie--he was funny in some parts, loved who played the mom, very touching, loved the scientist/president's daughter's love interest and his moral speech, loved how it it concluded.

Hurricane Season in our part of the world officially ends November 30th. So, what should do with all of those unused items you stocked up on? Give them to a food drive...a special one that runs from November 21 through 30th at The John C. Freeman Weather Museum here in Houston at 5401 Caroline St. In exchange for each item donated, you get a free admission to the museum. So, when you are looking for something to do with the kids during the Thanksgiving break, you can head to the museum, have a cleaned out pantry and entertain/educate the kids for free!!! What a great deal! For more information, go to:

Don't miss a special meeting of the Houston Chapter of the American Meteorological Society this Thursday, Nov. 19th, dinner at 6 pm, meeting at 7 pm at the Canyon Cafe at 5000 Westheimer, Suite 250. Dr. Gerald North of Texas A & M University will talk about "Global Warming, Lone Star Impacts". You do not have to be a member or a meteorologist to attend. Don't miss it! Should be quite a talk!!!

Have a great week everyone!
