North winds will send much cooler air into south Texas Tuesday night, giving us chilly weather through Thursday. It will be windy with sustained winds at 18-26 mph, gusting as high as 40 mph with highest gusts closer to the coast. Some clouds will move through Tuesday night into Wednesday morning but will quickly clear to sunny skies. Winds will subside Wednesday evening and with clear skies, temperatures will drop into the 30s to lower 40s by Thursday morning, touching the freezing mark in our northwestern counties. Although it will still be cold Thursday night, we'll start warming Friday through the weekend and will pick up more clouds as the onshore flow returns. No rain is in the forecast through next Monday.
