CORPUS CHRISTI- Tropical storm Karen now in the north central Gulf is moving northward and is no threat here as the upper levels winds are out of the southwest and continue protecting us from tropical activity. Karen will take moisture out our atmosphere resulting in very hot dry conditions ahead of our cold front arriving late Saturday night (see map)and resulting in very little rainfall with frontal passage. The main weather change with this front will be the much cooler temperatures.
Tonight will be warm and sticky but with mainly clear skies and nearly calm after midnight with a low of 74.
Saturday expect lots of sunshine light winds and scorching hot temperatures with a high of 94 and just off the record high of 96.
Expect only isolated showers late Saturday night and early Sunday with frontal passage turning noticeably cooler with a low of 64.
It will be much cooler and in the 50's here Sunday night and Monday night and the lowest levels since in 5 months.
Enjoy the weekend and the cool-down.
