Sunday Forecast

We'll see another rain chances into Sunday morning, but some sunshine should start to break out in the afternoon. As that's happening, winds will shift to out of the southwest, which will help temperatures warm to around 80.

LOOKING AHEAD: Next week's outlook is a tough one. There will be a lot of moving parts and nuances to tackle from day to day, so specifics right now will be difficult. The overall takeaway will be that skies will be cloudy and we will have some episodes of rain next week.  The murky details...

The cold front that approaches on Sunday will drift south of the region on Monday and become stationary. That will drop high temperatures into the 60s and provide light showers in the region.

That front then retreats to the north on Tuesday, bringing 70s back and lowering rain chances, but staying cloudy. This stationary front will be kind of like an atmospheric tide, ebbing and flowing over the Coastal Bend Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday.

Wednesday Forecast

On Thursday, a disturbance moving in from the west will move over South Texas from West to East, providing another rain chance and keeping temperatures in the 60s.

Because the forecast is so nuanced next week, there will likely be many adjustments as models come to an eventual resolution. Takeaway is cloudy with periods of rain.
