Forecasters are predicting nearly perfect weather for Easter egg hunts and outdoor sunrise services in the Crossroads this weekend.
"It's going to be pretty nice overall," said Roger Gass, with the National Weather Service office in Corpus Christi. "There's not much in the way of the rainfall."
He said a cold front was forecast to move through Friday evening, helping to bring milder temperatures and keeping the rainfall at bay over most of the weekend.
"We will see cooler overnight lows and some drier air filter in with some northerly winds," he said.
The low temperature Saturday morning should drop into the mid-50s, with patchy fog possible that morning. The sky is forecast to become sunny Saturday, as the temperature rises into the low 80s.
Winds Saturday will be out of the north at 10 mph, shifting to the east on Saturday afternoon.
"Most of that weather is going to be very brief," Gass said. "We're expecting the cold front to come back north as a warm front by Sunday."
The low Sunday will be in the low 60s, with a mostly cloudy sky and southeast winds at 10 mph. Sunday will also be mostly cloudy and forecasters are expecting a high in the low 80s.
