CORPUS CHRISTI - Ample cloud cover today kept us from reaching, or tying, another record high this afternoon as temperatures only reached the mid 80s staying clear of the record of 87 back in 2004.
At the 3PM time frame, the cold front was working through the Texas Hill Country just north of San Antonio as temperatures have dropped into the 30s in the Panhandle.
For us here in South Texas, the front is expected to arrive in the early morning hours around 1-5AM. Accompanying the front will be very strong and gusty winds as the National Weather Service has issued wind advisories for some area locations and also a Gale Warning for the coastal waters as winds increase to around 35-40+ knots and seas increasing to 7-11 feet. Boaters and mariners should exercise extreme caution. Showers and thunderstorms should remain fairly limited for us as we can expect only isolated to scattered activity as the front nears the Coastal Bend. One or two of the storms could go severe; however, they should remain sparse.
Monday will hold much cooler temperatures as they struggle to get out of the upper 50s. Winds will be brisk out of the northeast around 15-30mph as well.
Monday night will be very chilly as winds begin to lighten up under mostly clear skies and temperatures will tumble into the upper 30s to lower 40s.
Enjoy the cooler weather!
