Showers and t-storms will move through the Coastal Bend on Thursday night as a cold front drifts to the south.

Some of the storms could be strong or severe with damaging wind or large hail.

These will move out after midnight as winds shift to the northeast behind the front.

Clouds will be persistent Friday, and it will be cooler, with highs in the 70s and a spot-shower chance.

The front moves north as a warm front Saturday, and we'll heat back up into the 80s for the weekend with a chance of thunderstorms Saturday. A wave of low pressure aloft moves to our north, sending a Pacific cold front through by early Sunday morning.

Drier air behind the front will give us plenty of sunshine Sunday, and it will still be warm before a stronger cold front moves through late Sunday night.

We'll cool down for the first half of next week with nights in the 50s and days in the 70s.

Tonight: Scattered showers and t-storms and lows in the mid to upper 60s with winds shifting to the northeast up to 15 mph.

Friday: Mostly cloudy, breezy and cooler with highs in the 70s and northeast winds at 15-22 mph. There is a spot shower chance.

Friday night: Chance of showers and t-storms and lows in the upper 60s to low 70s.

Saturday: Mostly cloudy and warm with highs in the low to mid 80s and south-southeast winds up to 25 mph and a chance of showers and t-storms.

Sunday: Mostly sunny and warm with highs in the low to mid 80s and northwest winds up to 25 mph.
