CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — We are starting off this Tuesday morning with cold temperatures over South Texas with a good spread of the 30s across the region. There continues to be a Freeze Warning in effect for our inland counties until 8 a.m.

For today, look for plenty of sunshine and temperatures will be milder compared to yesterday, where we only managed to reach the upper 50s in the city of Corpus Christi. This afternoon, we'll increase that about 10 degrees and shoot for 68 for a high. Winds will turn south-southeasterly today and could get a tad on the breezy side around 10-20 MPH.

Tonight, same routine as the afternoon. Not quite as cold as this morning, but still on the chilly side as we drop into the lower 50s with mainly quiet conditions and light winds.

Another cold front will arrive on Wednesday, was looking like in the early morning hours, but looks to be lagging a few hours and now looks to pass through around midday. This will allow temperatures to reach the lower 70s for highs and much of the cool air is lagging way behind the boundary. Could also trigger a few coastal showers, but many of us will not participate unfortunately.

By Thursday morning, the cooler air will have caught up to us and we'll drop back into the upper 30s to lower 40s for many, but we'll still have a lot of afternoon sunshine with highs in the upper 50s to low 60s. This pattern will hold through the end of the week and right on into the weekend. Cold mornings in the 30s and 40s, staying above freezing for many, and sunshine-filled afternoons with highs mainly in the 60s.

Have a great Tuesday!
