Southwest winds frequently gusting over 20 knots are expected starting by midday today, so a Small Craft Advisory goes into effect at Noon CST today across all waters. A strong cold front will cause winds to shift to northwest then north and increase to 25 to 30 knots sustained with frequent gusts up to 40 knots possible late tonight into Sunday morning across the coastal waters when a Gale Warning is in effect.
Warm conditions are expected this afternoon. A strong cold front will push through the central Gulf Coast region tonight. There will be a chance of showers and a slight chance of thunderstorms starting in far inland areas later this morning and spreading southeast through the afternoon and evening hours. All rain chances will come to an end with the cold frontal passage by later this evening, then expect much cooler air along with brisk north winds for the overnight hours into Sunday morning. The strong north winds will likely lead to gale conditions over the Gulf coastal waters tonight into Sunday morning. Sunny but cool conditions are expected Sunday, then clear skies should lead to our coldest night of the season thus far Sunday night into Monday morning. Lows Sunday night are expected to be near the freezing mark in the colder northern locations with lower to mid 30s and 40 to 45 elsewhere. Many areas north of the tidal lakes and I-10 will likely see at least patchy frost, so tender vegetation will need to be protected.
