CORPUS CHRISTI, TX — A morning cold front brought rain, thunderstorms and much cooler air to the Coastal Bend today.

Temperatures fell from the lower 70s to the middle 50s between dawn and mid morning, and up to an inch of rain doused the region. Much heavier rainfall prompted flash flood warnings from the Edwards Plateau through South Central Texas earlier today, but those storms remained well north and west of the Coastal Bend.

Seasonable temperatures return for next week. Skies will remain partly to mostly cloudy, with temperatures quickly returning to near or slightly above normal.

Isolated to scattered showers can be anticipated, with scattered thunderstorms Monday and numerous storms Thursday ahead of another cold front. That front will clear moisture from the region for Friday and Saturday.

Look for highs in the 80s, except for 70s both Sunday and again on Friday. Lows will be in the upper 60s to lower 70s, except for upper 50s to lower 60s Thursday and Friday.
