The upper level wave that kept the clouds in place the past couple days is moving out and skies will clear Wednesday night into early Thursday morning giving us a bright end to the work week. Northerly winds will continue to send cool air into the Coastal Bend through Friday though and temperatures will stay below average. With clear skies and light winds, lows will dip into the 30s and 40s Thursday night. The onshore flow returns Friday night as winds shift to the east-southeast and clouds will return for the weekend. A warm front lifting north Saturday night could spark a few light showers through early Sunday morning but most of the weekend will be dry with warming temperatures and rising humidity. After a windy, warm start to the week, another cold front will move in Tuesday dropping temperatures back into the 50s by Wednesday.

Wednesday Night: Clearing late with lows in the low to mid 40s inland to low 50s coast.

Thursday: Sunny and warmer with highs in the low to mid 60s and cool northeast winds up to 18 mph.

Thursday night: Clear and cold with lows in the upper 30s inland to upper 40s coast.

Friday: Partly cloudy with highs in the low to mid 60s and east-northeast winds up to 16 mph.
