A Freeze Warning is in effect for parts of the Coastal Bend from 2-8 AM Wednesday as temperatures drop to 28-32 degrees. Those in the warned area will want to protect tender vegetation and cover exposed outdoor water pipes so they do not burst. Also, don't forget to give your pets a warm place to sleep. Winds will be lighter Wednesday and with abundant sunshine, temperatures will reach the upper 50s to lower 60s in the afternoon, falling into the 30s and lower 40s Wednesday night. We'll start warming up Thursday and Friday with days reaching into the 60s. A weak cold front will give us a few showers Friday but rainfall amounts look light, under a quarter inch. High pressure builds back in this weekend providing us with cool nights and mild days.
