CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — A cold front has moved through the South Texas area this afternoon and it is bringing a few light showers/sprinkles and some much cooler and drier air.

Though this isn't a big push of some cold air, it'll bring chilly temperatures for the next couple of mornings and set up a fantastic weekend forecast.

Tonight will be much cooler, with overcast skies, and we'll hold on to a few sprinkles 'til about 3 a.m. After that, we'll see clearing skies and temperatures falling into the middle 50s. Wind: N 10-18 MPH

Saturday will feature lots of afternoon sunshine, and it will be noticeably drier and cooler with a high of 70 in Corpus Christi. Wind: N 6-12 MPH

On Sunday, we'll start in the upper 40s early in the morning and then warm up quite nicely into the mid-70s in the afternoon under mostly sunny skies. Wind: SE 5-10 MPH

By the start of the work week, temperatures will go about 5-10 degrees above normal, and highs will push back into the 80s. Look for more clouds on Tuesday, and for the rest of the week. A front will push through Central Texas on Tuesday, but it looks to stall just north of the Coastal Bend, only keeping cloud coverage here and temperatures in the upper 70s.

Thanksgiving Day still will hold mainly cloudy skies, a few light showers and a high of 77. Central and northern parts of the state will have cooler weather.
