CORPUS CHRISTI- Some of the coldest temperatures of the season will occur overnight but most area will stay above freezing due to the Canadian high pressure pulling away from us and from us and high clouds advancing in from Mexico. As the high moves away the mid levels of the atmosphere warms and the clouds prevent or at least slow down radiation cooling. Some areas will experience frost which can occur when the air temperature is still 37 degrees. The warm-up process will produce above normal temperatures again by this weekend but also a fair amount of clouds so the sky will not be as clear or pretty as it was on Wednesday.
Tonight expect a light freeze well inland in the Orange Grove George west Cotulla area otherwise high clouds and cold with nearly calm winds and a low (in Corpus Christi) of 36.
Thanksgiving we will have sunshine mixed with high clouds very light winds and pleasantly warmer with a high of 63.
Thursday night expect mainly clear skies and chilly but not as cold with a low of 45.
Friday will be good for shoppers and other outdoor activities as the winds will still be light with variable sunshine and continued warm with a high of 69.
Have a Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!
