We definitely had some interesting weather overnight with a very strong cold front rolling through.

Many areas saw winds between 40 and 50 miles per hour.

Most of the significant shower activity moved through our northern areas.

We have had numerous reports of power outages in Corpus Christi and surrounding communities.

There is also a lot of downed trees and debris scattered on some roadways. Use caution when getting out on the roads this morning.

The forecast is going to dramatically improve through the next couple of hours.

The clouds are going to clear out and we will see abundant sunshine this afternoon.

Look for a daytime high around 77 degrees.

However, it will remain rather windy.

The winds will be blowing out of the north at 15 to 25 miles per hour.

It’s going to be much cooler tonight.

The forecast for this evening calls for an overnight low around 49 degrees with the winds winding down.

It will be absolutely beautiful on Sunday.

Look for mostly sunny skies with a daytime high around 80 degrees.

It will continue to be sunny and breezy for the first half of the workweek.

Daytime highs will be in the lower 80’s with overnight lows will be in the 60’s.

We could see increasing rain chances as we get closer to next weekend.
