We'll have more windy, mild weather through Wednesday before the next cold front arrives, cooling us down for the last day of 2020. Rain is likely as the front moves through Wednesday night with projected rainfall of a half inch in our southern counties to near an inch in Corpus Christi and up to an inch and a half north of Corpus Christi.

Tonight will be breezy, mostly cloudy and mild with lows in the low 60s inland to the mid 60s coast. A stray shower is possible toward morning.

Tuesday looks windy, partly sunny and mild with highs near 80 inland and upper 70s in Corpus Christi while beaches will stay in the lower 70s. South-southeast winds will increase to 18-25 mph in the afternoon with gusts to 30 mph.

An isolated shower is possible early in the day Wednesday under mostly cloudy skies. It will be windy again with highs in the upper 70s to 80 inland. As a cold front approaches, showers and isolated t-storms will increase Wednesday afternoon and become likely Wednesday night. Temperatures will fall to the low to mid 40s by Thursday morning.

Skies will clear Thursday and it will be chilly with high temperatures only in the 50s and northwesterly winds at 15-25 mph, dying down Thursday night. The start of 2021 will be cold with lows Friday morning in the 30s, reaching the mid 60s in the afternoon.
