VICTORIA, Texas - Cool, dry high pressure settled into the Crossroads this morning, putting a sunrise chill on the region that dropped the mercury deep into the 40s. Abundant sunshine has allowed temperatures in the lower to middle 70s this afternoon, but wind becomes more southerly overnight to limit cooling as the high moves southeast and offshore. Sunshine and warmer, breezy conditions are expected Tuesday, followed by increasing moisture and clouds on Wednesday that will yield scattered showers and thunderstorms. Wednesday night will involve a cold front moving through with strong upper level instability, inducing strong to severe storms with heavy rainfall. The wetness should pull away from South Texas Thursday morning, leaving the rest of the week fair and mild. Look for highs in the 80s, except for upper 70s on Friday. Lows will remain in the 50s and 60s.
