CORPUS CHRISTI - We have started off the day pretty damp and foggy across the Coastal Bend. Even though it will not amount to much, it is certainly good for lawns to take in even the smallest amounts moisture. This is leading to slick roads, motorists are urged to use caution and slow down on area roadways early in the day.
Fog and mist will slowly burn off as we get towards sunrise, but with plenty of cloud cover in place, it will be a slow process.
Today will still be fairly warm, hazy, and windy with highs reaching the mid to upper 80s. Winds will be out of the SSE around 15-30mph with gusts in the 40s. Clouds will be plentiful with maybe a couple of peaks of sunshine this afternoon.
Tonight will be warm with another shot of some fog/mist late in the night as lows only drop into the mid 70s once again. Winds will stay a bit elevated around 15-25mph under cloudy to overcast skies.
Thursday will be a tad warmer in the upper 80s under cloudy skies as the cold front we've been talking about edges closer to the Coastal Bend and moves through late in the day around 8-11PM. There may be a few isolated showers and a rumble of thunder, but unfortunately it looks like the vast majority of the area will once again miss out on the opportunity for some meaningful rain.
Temperatures drop into the 50s Friday and Saturday for lows and 70s for highs before under mostly sunny skies before we start to warm up for the end of the weekend and start of the next work week.
Have a great day!
