CORPUS CHRISTI - This afternoon was absolutely spectacular as temperatures stayed into the 50's for most of South Texas and gave us a "below seasonal" afternoon high for a change.
Tonight, expect another round of cold temperatures to unfold over the region with a light freeze possible up to our northern counties as we should stop into the mid to upper 30s in the city of Corpus Christi. Winds will remain fairly light and variable through the night. We will start the night under mostly clear skies, but will quickly cloud to mostly cloudy skies by the morning.
Thursday, the clouds will build up from the overnight hours and sunshine looks to be minimal with only a few stray showers lingering over the area. A few lucky residents might see a brief shower or drizzle through the afternoon. Highs will remain in the lower to mid-60s with an east-northeast wind at 5-10mph.
Our next front comes in on Friday in the early afternoon hours which will allow temperatures to warm in the lower 70s and will provide a chance for some isolated showers as is passes through. Still, this is not going to be a washout and most of the rain is once again robbed of us here in South Texas and remains well to our north.
Temperatures fall into the lower 40's Saturday and Sunday morning before another approaching system brings a better chance for rain on New Year's Eve and New Year's Day with scattered showers over the entire Coastal Bend.
Have a great day!
