Monday’s cold front

Get ready for a toasty weekend, but it will be short-lived. By Monday, fall will arrive with a force.

Sunday’s forecast

Expect another warm and humid day on Sunday with highs near 90 degrees. It will be breezy again, with the potential of a quick stray shower.

The tides are still expected to be elevated. Levels could be 1-2 feet above normal. The rip current risk will also be in the moderate category, so use caution if planning to be in the water.

Monday’s forecast

A cold front will be headed toward the Coastal Bend on Monday. As of right now, the front looks to split the day in two. We’ll start the day warm and humid in the 80s, and then the cold front will arrive between late-morning and midday. From there, temperatures plummet to the 60s and the chance for rain picks up. By evening, temperatures look to fall into the 50s with windy conditions and rain possible—it’s going to feel downright chilly!

You’ll want to be sure to send the kids to school with a jacket because the warm morning will turn into a very fall-like afternoon. As the cold front moves through, a line of storms is possible. A couple of these storms could be strong with some small hail and gusty winds. Overall, widespread severe weather is not expected.
