After a record high of 95 Thursday, much cooler air is getting ready to move in behind a cold front Friday. The front will move into the Coastal Bend from late morning through early afternoon with scattered showers and isolated storms which will quickly move south and out of the area by 5 PM. Winds will shift to the north by early afternoon and become gusty, up to 32 mph which will usher in cooler and drier air. Temperatures will warm in the morning into the 80s but quickly fall through the afternoon into the 70s and into the 60s during the evening hours. High school football games look dry but windy which will make it feel cool as temperatures fall through the 60s. By Saturday morning we'll dip into the mid to upper 50s under mostly cloudy skies, reaching the lower 70s as clouds break in the afternoon and northerly winds decrease. We'll heat back up early next week with isolated shower chances before the next cold front moves in Wednesday, dropping temperatures slightly.

Thursday night: Partly cloudy and warm with lows in the mid 70s to near 80 and southeast winds at 10-18 mph.

Friday: Scattered showers and isolated storms will move through from 11 AM to 4 PM as a cold front moves through. Winds will shift to the north at 20-25 mph, gusting up to 32 mph at times, dropping temperatures into the 70s by late afternoon.

Friday Night: Mostly cloudy, windy and cooler with lows in the upper 50s by early Saturday morning. Winds will continue at 15-20 mph.

Saturday: Morning clouds will break up through the day and northerly winds will diminish to near 10 mph by evening. Highs will reach the low to mid 70s.

Saturday Night: Partly cloudy with lows in the upper 50s to lower 60s.

Sunday: Partly sunny with an isolated shower chance and highs near 80 with east winds up to 12 mph.
