Temperatures will be a tad cooler for Thursday, but the biggest impact of the approaching cold front will be the rain.

Thursday’s forecast

A line of storms is expected to accompany a cold front through the Coastal Bend overnight through Thursday morning. Heavy rain will be possible with these storms in addition to thunder and lightning. A F;ash Flood Watch is in effect until 7 a.m. Thursday due to the potential of locally heavy rainfall.

As the cold front slides south of the area, the rain chance will taper off—leaving us with clouds and potentially a little sunshine by afternoon. This will keep highs in the low 80s for most of the area.

The wind will blow out of the north as the front passes. However, the wind won’t be very strong as we might typically see with a fall front.

Friday’s forecast

Friday morning looks to be partly to mostly cloudy with the potential of a stray shower or two. By afternoon and evening, some pop up showers may start appearing, but it will be nothing like Thursday morning’s rain. Highs are forecast to be back in the mid-80s.

Saturday and Sunday

By Saturday, the rain chance looks to pick up again as our weather pattern remains unsettled. Unfortunately, this doesn’t look like the perfect “fall” weekend, but it will make for a great set of days to sit inside and watch football.
