This will send scattered showers and t-storms into the Coastal Bend with an isolated chance of severe storms mainly in our inland areas with heavy rain and strong wind gusts possible. Showers and storms will taper off after 2 AM with showers ending early Thursday morning as temperatures fall into the 40s. Northerly winds sustained at 20-30 mph overnight could gust as high as 40 mph through early Thursday. Winds will diminish slowly through the day Thursday with highs reaching the mid to upper 50s in the afternoon, dropping to near 50 by 10 PM. Friday morning will be cold with lows in the upper 30s inland to the low to mid 40s at the coast.
