CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — A weak upper level disturbance generated patches of sleet over the Coastal Bend this morning, but that system has moved away and skies will clear overnight.

The clear, dry air and light wind will allow another freeze over inland parts of the region tonight. Temperatures recover to above normal by midweek. High pressure causing the freezing conditions moves into the Gulf of Mexico by late Wednesday, providing a southerly breeze that will warm the area.

The next cold front arrives late Thursday night but does not have sufficient moisture available to generate showers. It does keep temperatures near normal into Sunday, when another cold front arrives.

Expect scattered showers on Sunday, fair skies Monday and a good chance of rain Tuesday. Highs will be in the 60s, except lower 70s on Thursday. Lows remain in the 30s and 40s.
