CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Much cooler air has filtered into South Texas as we begin Thursday with temperatures mainly in the 40s across the region.

Don't forget the sweater or light jacket as you make your way out the door today.

This afternoon, temperatures will be below normal for a change with highs only forecast to reach about 64 today, four degrees below our climatological high for this time of the year. Winds will be a bit on the breezy side out of the east-northeast around 10-15 mph. We'll also look for some mid and high level clouds to increase as the day progresses.

Tonight won't be as cold as this morning, but it will still be on the cool side with a few clouds lingering in the area. Overnight lows will fall to the low 50s with east-northeasterly winds around 5-10 mph.

Temperatures will be milder on Friday as winds increase. There will still be a good mix of clouds and sun with a high of 70s.

Expect a windy Saturday with sustained southerly winds around 15-25 mph and gusting. Temperatures are forecast to shoot above normal into the low 80s by the afternoon. This is ahead of the next cold front that will arrive late Saturday night into early Sunday morning.

With the front arriving early Sunday, it will be drier and slightly cooler with a high of 75 with a breezy northeasterly wind around 10-20 mph with lots of sunshine.

Early next week the sunny skies will carry over and high temperatures will hover in the upper 60s to low 70s. Winds and cloud coverage will also increase by Wednesday.

Unfortunately, rainfall is not looking at all promising for the next seven days.

Have a great day!
