Our next big cool-down is on the way for Tuesday night as a cold front moves through. Ahead of the front, we'll still be warm Tuesday but winds will shift to the north Tuesday evening and increase, ushering in the cooler air. The upper level winds will shift to the northwest, keeping the air dry through the week with abundant sunshine Wednesday through Friday. The dry air will allow temperatures to plummet Wednesday night with lows near freezing in our northwestern counties, mid to upper 30s around Corpus Christi and low 40s coast. We'll start warming up again Friday into the weekend, picking up more clouds as the onshore flow returns and winds increase Sunday.

Monday Night: Mostly cloudy and cooler with lows in the low 50s inland to near 60 at the beaches and light north winds.

Tuesday: Becoming sunny and warm with highs near 70 at the beaches to the low 80s inland and light east-southeast winds shifting to the north late in the day.

Tuesday Night: Windy, partly cloudy and cooler with lows in the lower 40s inland to the upper 40s coast and north winds at 15-20 mph, gusting to 30 mph.

Wednesday: Sunny, windy and cool with highs in the 50s and north winds at 15-25 mph, gusting as high as 35 mph.

Wednesday Night: Clear and cold with lows in the low to mid 30s inland to near 40 at the beaches and diminishing northerly winds.

Thursday: Sunny and cool with highs in the mid 50s to low 60s and northeast-east winds under 12 mph.
