Unsettled weather will move into Texas this weekend as an upper level low pressure area moves across north Texas and sends surface low pressure through south Texas Sunday. Snow is expected in northern Texas with 3-6 inches possible while in the Coastal Bend, we will get a good soaking with 1-2 inches of rainfall from Saturday night through Sunday. It will stay cool this weekend and for the first half of next week with cold nights. A freeze is possible early Tuesday morning in our inland areas with lows in the mid 30s around Corpus Christi.

Tonight we'll stay clear and chilly with lows in the upper 30s to 40 inland and upper 40s at the coast with northeast winds at 5-10 mph.

We'll start with sunshine Saturday but clouds will increase and temperatures will only reach near 60 during the day with a cool northeast wind shifting to the east at 15 mph.

Showers will increase Saturday night and rain will become likely Sunday morning with isolated t-storms. Moderate rain at times will boost rainfall totals up to an inch with some areas up to two inches. Highest totals are expected from Corpus Christi north. The rain will taper off Sunday afternoon and we'll dry out Sunday night as gusty northerly winds develop.

Monday will start off cold and windy with morning temperatures in the upper 30s to mid 40s and an icy wind from the north, making it feel more like the upper 20s to low 30s with the wind chill. Clouds will stick around much of the day Monday, making for a chilly afternoon with temperatures only reaching into the lower 50s.

As winds die down and skies clear, lows will drop into the lower 30s inland to near 40 at the coast by Tuesday morning. A light freeze is possible for the inland coastal plain to eastern Brush Country.

Temperatures will stay below average through next Wednesday before rising late in the week, with milder temperatures to end the work week.
