CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Southerly winds were strong Tuesday but will die down and shift to the northeast Wednesday as a weak cold front moves through. The front won't cool us down as we'll still reach the low to mid 80s Wednesday with mostly sunny skies.

The weather for Thanksgiving looks good with a warm afternoon, reaching the lower 80s and plenty of sunshine. It will feel more humid as southeast winds increase to 12-20 mph in the afternoon.

Friday will be changeable as a cold front approaches. Ahead of the front, showers will increase in the afternoon in our northern counties with rain becoming more likely at the coast Friday night. Showers will continue Saturday with northwest winds and temperatures only reaching the lower 60s.

As the upper level low in north Texas moves off to the northeast, rain will end Saturday night. Rainfall totals are forecast to come in from a half inch to an inch with locally higher amounts north of Corpus Christi.

Nights will get chilly as the air dries out, dropping into the lower 40s Sunday night and Monday night. Days will stay in the 60s as a reinforcing shot of cool air arrives Monday with breezy northerly winds.
