Thanks to the cold front that moved through on Tuesday night, mostly sunny skies will reign in the Coastal Bend through the weekend. But, a cold front is on its way for next week.

Thursday and Friday

A re-enforcing shot of dry air will blow into the Coastal Bend on Thursday, which will keep humidity levels low through early Friday. This will help keep the sunny skies in place, but we’ll also see temperatures back up in the 80s both days.

With Hurricane Michael having stirred up the Gulf over the past few days, increased swells and rip currents will be expected again along our shores. The threat is not forecast to be as bad as Wednesday, but the tides are still forecast to be elevated.

The weekend

The humidity and even warmer temperatures will stream back in for the weekend. Temperatures are likely to reach the 90-degree mark again on Saturday, and the humidity and sunshine will only make it worse. By Sunday, a cold front is expected to start marching through Texas. It still remains unclear as to when the front will push through the Coastal Bend. As of now, it looks like the front will move through Sunday night, meaning Sunday will also be warm.

Next week

The cold front will blow through just in time to start the work week. With it will come a chance of rain and temperatures down in the 60s.
