CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Most of November has been warm and dry but a stronger cold front will bring change for the holiday weekend.

Tuesday looks windy and warm with a high of 84 and southeast winds at 15-25 mph under partly cloudy skies. A stray shower is possible Tuesday morning but most areas will remain dry.

As we head toward Thanksgiving, the warm, humid weather will continue with breezy days and mild nights. We'll stay dry with days in the low to mid 80s through Friday. Rain chances will increase late Friday.

Our next cold front is stronger and expected to come in this weekend but there is still uncertainty on the timing. The faster forecast model brings it in late Friday night but another brings it in a day later which would extend the showers into Sunday. As of now, rain looks more likely Friday night and Saturday, tapering off Saturday night with total rainfall amounts from a half inch inland up to an inch and a half at the coast.

Days will be cooler this weekend with highs in the mid 60s to lower 70s and nights in the upper 40s and 50s with northerly winds behind the cold front.
