CORPUS CHRISTI - We have seen mostly cloudy to overcast skies over most of the Coastal Bend on this New Year's Eve. A few spots have seen some light rain and drizzle, however rainfall amounts have only come back to a trace to a few hundredths of an inch. It has been a little breeze with winds out of the south that have ushered in some very warm temperatures back into the upper 70s and even some lower 80s this afternoon.
Tonight, to bring in the New Year, we are looking at overcast skies with showers over the area. We may pick up a few tenths of an inch around the midnight time frame. Temperatures will be in the lower 70s to upper 60s with south winds still in place at 6-12mph.
On New Year's Day, a front will sweep South Texas in the late morning hours and swing winds around to the north and remain fairly brisk all day long around 15-25mph. Temperatures will start in the lower 70s (again around midnight) and as the front arrives, temperatures will fall from there into the mid-40s by Wednesday morning.
The front looks to stall over the coastal waters and will develop into a trough and essentially continue to deliver moisture into the area for a few days with isolated to scattered showers remaining in the forecast until Thursday with very chilly afternoon highs struggling to get into the lower 50s on Wednesday and Thursday.
Happy New Year's everyone!
