CORPUS CHRISTI - A weak frontal boundary made its way into our northern counties for a good portion of the day today and led to some northerly winds over most of South Texas. Still we have some dry air out to the west that is trying to make its way towards the area and that is raising temperatures passed the 90 degree mark around Hebbronville and Falfurrias while the central half of our viewing area remained in the mid to upper 80s.
Tonight, there will be an opportunity to see some fog form (especially near the coastline) before a fairly strong cold front moves through South Texas around 4-8AM. This feature will clear out the moisture in the air and bring clear skies, cooler temperatures, and strong winds. The National Weather Service has issued a Red Flag Warning to be in effect for the high fire danger from Sunday morning until the evening hours due to low humidity values, strong winds, and the extremely dry vegetation. Temperatures should dip into the mid-50s to lower 60s tonight. Winds will begin light and variable early tonight before picking up around 15-30mph and gusting out of the north when the front moves through.
Sunday will be much cooler than today and will be mostly sunny, but the winds will be somewhat of a nuisance until they calm down later on in the evening. High temperatures will range in the lower to mid-70s.
Monday and Tuesday mornings will start off chilly as we drop into the upper 40s with afternoon highs in the upper 60s and lower 70s. Clouds will slowly start to build back as high pressure eases off and there is a small opportunity for some showers on Thursday.
Have a great weekend.
