The cold north breeze will die down tonight and with clear skies, temperatures will drop into the 30s and 40s. A light freeze is possible in northern counties where a Freeze Warning is in effect from 2-8 AM Thursday for McMullen, Live Oak, Bee and Refugio counties. Corpus Christi will stay above freezing but it will be quite cold with an early morning low of 34. Coastal areas will stay in the low to mid 40s.

After a cold morning, abundant sunshine will bring temperatures up into the low to mid 60s Thursday with light northeast winds shifting to the east up to 12 mph. It won't be as cold Thursday night with lows in the low 40s inland to low 50s coast.

Breezy southeast to south winds will warm temperatures to near 70 Friday afternoon with partly cloudy skies ahead of the next cold front which will move in Saturday morning.

A few showers are possible early Saturday but better rain chances will stay to our north. Any rain we see Saturday morning looks light with under a tenth of an inch. It still looks mild Saturday with a high near 70 but winds will shift to the north Saturday night, cooling us back into the mid 60s for highs Sunday as skies gradually clear.
