Clouds will thicken overnight with southeast winds at 15-20 mph, keeping our low temperatures in the lower 70s. There is a stray shower chance but most areas will stay dry. Overcast skies will greet us early Wednesday and  we’ll continue to have a slight chance of a shower or t-storm but most of the day looks dry with partial afternoon sunshine and highs reaching the low to mid 80s.



A cold front moves through late Wednesday night sending a line of showers and t-storms across the state which will be more numerous to our north. The Coastal Bend will see scattered showers and a few t-storms from 4 to 8 AM with skies clearing quickly Thursday morning. The chance of a strong or severe storm is low but can’t be completely ruled out for strong wind gusts. Skies clear Thursday morning as winds shift to the north with highs reaching the lower 80s and a cooler night, dipping into the 50s overnight Thursday.


Lower humidity and less wind will make for a pleasant end to the work week with sunny skies Friday.  Days will stay warm through the weekend, reaching the low to mid 80s with plenty of sunshine. Winds shift back to the southeast, bringing the humidity up through the weekend with nights near 70 by Sunday and gusty winds for Easter.
