Warmer weather is on the way for Thursday as winds shift to the southwest boosting afternoon temperatures into the 70s with sunny skies. A cold front moves through Thursday night and will cool us down a bit Friday with temperatures back into the lower 30s Friday night. Another front moves through Sunday but moisture is lacking so only a stray morning shower is possible. Temperatures look seasonal next week as our weather pattern becomes more unsettled with showers possible Tuesday.

Tonight will be clear and chilly with lows in the mid to upper 30s inland and upper 40s at the coast with light south winds.

Southwesterly winds at 10-18 mph will warm us into the mid to upper 70s inland Thursday and near 70 at the coast with abundant sunshine. Winds will shift to the north Thursday evening behind a cold front with overnight lows in the upper 30s to lower 40s.

Friday will be sunny but a bit cooler with highs in the low to mid 60s and cool northerly winds at 10-18 mph. Temperatures will fall to near freezing inland Friday night and 33 in Corpus Christi under clear skies.

For the weekend, after a cold start Saturday, daytime temperatures will reach the mid-upper 60s as winds shift to the south up to 15 mph. A cold front will move through Sunday but will only bring some clouds and cool temperatures slightly, into the lower 60s for highs.
