A cold front will move over South Texas tonight and with it we are expecting isolated to scattered thunderstorms. A few of these storms could be strong to severe. The front is expected to move over Victoria just before midnight. It will  not arrive to Corpus until after midnight. Following the passage of the front, we will see rain chances diminish as cooler, drier air moves in. It will also become windy after the front, especially in areas along the coast. 

As far as severe weather is concerned, best chances lie in the northeastern part of our area, where they have a ‘marginal’ risk of severe weather. This area includes Rockport, Refugio, Beeville, and even as far west as George West. Main hazards associated with these storms, if they become severe, are damaging winds, hail, and even an isolated tornado isn’t out of the question. 

Winds will increase after the front arrives, so Small Craft advisory Conditions may develop overnight. Temperatures will dip into the upper 50s to low 60s early Wednesday morning. 

Wednesday will be mostly cloudy, windy and cooler. NNE winds 5-25 MPH. Highs will only reach the upper 60s and to mid 70s. High of 71 degrees.
