A cold front has moved through and a cool northerly breeze will bring temperatures back down for Friday with a chilly morning and mild afternoon. We'll drop to the freezing mark Friday night from Corpus Christi to our inland areas with lows from 30-32 by Saturday morning. Days will reach the low to mid 60s this weekend with more clouds Sunday but still mainly dry. Our next chance of rain moves in Tuesday and Wednesday.

Tonight will be clear and chilly with lows in the upper 30s inland to the upper 40s at the coast. Sunshine will warm us into the low to mid 60s Friday but the north wind of 10-20 mph will be chilly.

Sensitive plants will need to be covered Friday night as a light freeze is expected inland. Corpus Christi will briefly drop to 31 with 30 to 32 in our inland areas. Coastal areas will drop into the upper 30s to lower 40s.

After a cold morning, Saturday looks nice with light winds, sunny skies and afternoon temperatures touching the mid 60s. Clouds will move in Sunday morning with an upper level wave but only a stray shower is possible. Temperatures will reach the mid-upper 60s Sunday afternoon.

The first half of next week will be slightly warmer with highs in the lower 70s and partly sunny skies. Showers will increase Tuesday night and become likely Wednesday as upper level disturbances move in from the southwest. Showers will taper off Wednesday night. At this time, only a half inch or less of rainfall is expected.
