Rain tonight and much cooler for the weekend

Posted at 8:18 PM, Dec 07, 2018

The combination of a cold front and an upper level disturbance has produced rain Friday evening with more expected tonight that will gradually end by around daybreak from west to east on Saturday morning. Rocky Mountain high pressure will build slowly into the area resulting in only slow clearing and much cooler temperatures for the weekend and into early next week. Total rainfall  from today and tonight will generally be in the 1-2 inch range for much of the Coastal Bend.

Tonight showers and thundershowers likely with some producing locally heavy rain and a low near 50.

Saturday except for a brief lingering shower near the coast,  the rain is over but the clouds remain with only slow clearing late in the day and a high much cooler at just 57.

Saturday night expect clearing skies breezy and colder with a low of 42 and wind chill in the 30’s.

Sunday expect less wind more sunshine but still chilly with a high of only 59.

Sunday night will be clear calmer and cold with a low of 39.
