CORPUS CHRISTI - Plenty of afternoon clouds could not stop temperatures from reaching the lower to mid-80s over most of South Texas today. A weak frontal boundary entered the Coastal Bend a few hours earlier than expected around the noon to 1PM time frame and stopped us from reaching the upper 80s. Those in Deep South Texas, near the Edinburg and Weslaco area, reached the 90s this afternoon.
Tonight, as the frontal boundary stalls over the area, near the coastline, it will trigger a few showers and maybe even a rumble of thunder in the overnight hours under mostly cloudy skies and temperatures falling into the lower 60s.
Monday will be noticeably cooler than today's afternoon highs as we top out in the lower to mid-70s under generally overcast skies with the opportunity for an isolated shower or drizzle spot to occur throughout the day. Winds will be a bit breezy out of the east-northeast around 10-20mph with higher gusts possible.
Another reinforcing shot of some cooler air will migrate towards South Texas on Tuesday during the early afternoon hours and will allow temperatures to warm up back into the upper 70s to lower 80s Tuesday afternoon. Behind the front, temperatures will relax to the 60s for highs on Wednesday under mostly sunny skies. Yet another front should arrive late Friday and keep temperatures in the 60s and nighttime lows in the 40s.
Have a great week!
