CORPUS CHRISTI - Not much in the way of sunshine this Sunday afternoon as cooler temperatures and overcast skies have blanketed the Coastal Bend in response to the cold front that moved into the area late last night into early this morning. A brisk northerly wind also accompanied the front with gusts as high as high as 30mph reported at the airport early in the day. The winds are expected to calm down tonight, but pick up back to breezy levels in the overnight hours.
Tonight, expect mostly cloudy to overcast skies and an overnight low in the upper 50's, around 57 degrees.
Monday, Columbus Day, starts a slow warming trend as temperatures will rebound to the upper 70's to some low 80's possible near the coast and clouds breaking up. A north-northeast wind should remain around 5-15mph as well.
The remainder of the work week will have the temperatures continuing to warm up and reaching the 90's by the end of the week. There will be only a stray chance of seeing a shower or two pop up each afternoon, with better chances on Wednesday through Friday. Though, chances are so low, amounts will only be a trace to a hundredth of an inch at this point.
Have a great Monday!
