Front brings slight rain chance and brief relief

Posted at 5:19 PM, Apr 28, 2020

We'll have a brief break from the hot, humid weather thanks to a cold front which will move through early Wednesday. A line of showers and t-storms moving south over the Gulf Wednesday morning could clip the Coastal Bend but many areas will be missed, especially farther inland. The chance of rain is best in the morning through early afternoon before the drier air moves in with breezy northeast winds. Lows will be cooler Wednesday night, dropping into the low to mid 60s under mostly clear skies. Thursday and Friday will be warm with lower humidity before hot, humid weather returns this weekend as a ridge of high pressure strengthens over south Texas through early next week, giving us weather more typical of mid-summer.

Tonight: Mostly cloudy, breezy and muggy with lows in the low to mid 70s. There is a slight chance of a shower or t-storm, mainly inland early in the night.

Wednesday: A few showers or t-storms are possible in the morning then we'll see partly cloudy skies and a warm afternoon, reaching the low 80s at the coast to near 90 inland with northeast winds up to 25 mph.

Wednesday Night; Mostly clear and cooler with lows in the low 60s inland to upper 60s at the coast.

Thursday: Mostly sunny and warm with highs in the low 80s at the coast to the upper 80s inland and winds shifting to the east-southeast up to 16 mph.

Thursday Night: Clear with lows in the mid to upper 60s.

Friday: Mostly sunny and warm with highs in the 80s to near 90 inland and southeast winds up to 20 mph.
