CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Good morning Coastal Bend!

Today we'll see the sun! A warmer afternoon with ample sunshine lies ahead. First, we've got cold temperatures in the 30s to contend with. Dressing in layers is recommended as highs rise to the 50s this afternoon. The sunshine will help bring a gradual warm-up over the next couple of days; still, expect chilly mornings as clear skies will lead to radiational cooling, and temps will drop several degrees overnight. We'll wake up to morning lows in the middle to upper 30s on Friday morning and top out near 60ºF by the afternoon.

Over the weekend, conditions will be near average: lows rebound to the 40s and highs in the upper 60s. Expect 70s in the forecast by Sunday. Windy conditions take hold on Monday as southeast winds of 10-20 MPH could gust as high as 25 MPH. Our next best chance of rain arrives next Tuesday evening and Wednesday.

Have a terrific Thursday!
