UPDATE – 9:30PM:

The severe line of showers and thunderstorms that moved through the area earlier this afternoon will continue to dissipate as we head into the overnight hours and high pressure moves in.  The weak frontal boundary, associated with all the thunderstorm activity, will cool us down slightly as we head into the overnight hour.  Lows will drop in the mid to low 60s near the coast and upper 50s to low 60s inland. Winds will shift to the north-northwest around 6-12 MPH.

There was a report of a funnel cloud near the city of George West, but no confirmed touchdown was reported to the National Weather Service at this time.

Thursday will be very nice with sunny and drier conditions as the large storm system continues to push away from the Coastal Bend. Highs will push the middle to upper 80s for many except the coastline where highs will reach the upper 70s to low 80s.  Winds: NNW 10-15 MPH

Friday, Saturday and Sunday looks very nice with highs in the middle 80s and plenty of sunshine.  Humidity will start to increase by Sunday afternoon.

Clouds will roll back into the area on Monday and winds will increase out of the southeast.  This will lead to very humid conditions again and eventually mainly cloudy skies on Tuesday and Wednesday of next week and only a passing shower.  Highs will stay in the 80s with lows in the 70s.
