We aren't done with winter weather yet in the Coastal Bend. Light freezing rain is possible tonight in our inland areas with up to a tenth inch of ice and a glaze closer to the coast. There could be some slick roads, especially bridges and overpasses overnight into early Wednesday.

After a brief warm up, reaching the upper 40s Wednesday under partly sunny skies, colder air will drop us back to freezing by Thursday morning except for the island which wlll stay above freezing Wednesday night.

Thursday looks windy and cold with high temperatures in the lower 40s and north winds at 15-22 mph, producing wind chills in the 20s to low 30s under mostly cloudy skies.

A hard freeze is likely Thursday night with lows in the 20s and wind chills in the teens as northerly winds decrease to near 10 mph and clouds decrease.

After a cold start, we'll make it into the upper 40s Friday afternoon under mostly sunny skies and light north winds shifting to the northeast.

The cold weather pattern finally breaks this weekend as winds shift to the southeast, bumping temperatures into the lower to mid 60s Saturday and low 70s Sunday.
