Northerly winds will keep us dry and cool the next couple days before rain moves in late Saturday night and Sunday with a surface low pressure area which will track across south Texas.

Tonight will be cold with lows by morning in the mid 30s inland to the upper 30s in Corpus Christi and mid 40s at the coast under clear skies and a north breeze at 6-12 mph.
Friday and Saturday will stay cool with highs in the lower 60s and a northerly breeze. Clouds will increase Saturday as a storm system approaches south Texas, lifting moisture northward Saturday night.

A few coastal showers are possible Saturday night but most of the rain will come Sunday as surface low pressure moves slowly across south Texas. Rain showers are likely Sunday with anywhere from a half inch of rain to an inch and a half across the Coastal Bend with highest totals along the coast. While we will see rain, northern Texas has the potential of a few inches of snow Sunday so those planning on traveling north of San Angelo may run into slick roads.

The storm system will move east Sunday night with rain ending and cool air settling in with northerly winds, giving us a chilly start to next week with nights in the 30s to mid 40s and days in the 50s through Tuesday.
