CORPUS CHRISTI - Overcast skies and windy conditions have helped our temperatures remain in the upper 70s along the coast with 80's and even some lower 90s for the inland areas as clouds have broken and more sunshine has become prominent. The winds have been somewhat of a nuisance this afternoon as we have seen a peak wind gust of 44mph so far at Corpus Christi International Airport.
Tonight, the clouds start to break before we re-cloud up as a frontal boundary pushes for South Texas. As it does, it will come in contact with our moist atmosphere and give way to a few showers and possible a rumble of thunder for our northern counties. The bulk of the rainfall will unfortunately be to our north. Overnight lows will not fall much from the upper 60s to even some lower 70s as the winds will remain elevated all night around 15-30mph starting from the southeast and ending out of the north by the early morning hours. Rainfall amounts will not be impressive, but every drop we get will certainly count.
Sunday, we will start of the day with those few showers and once the front passes by the noontime hour, we will start to see the clouds break. Highs will still reach the middle to upper 70s with winds brisk out of the north around 15-25mph as it filters in cooler and drier air.
Monday and Tuesday morning will be much cooler with temperatures dropping into the middle to upper 40s and afternoon highs being in the upper 60s to lower 70s. Winds will still be brisk, so extreme fire danger will exist. Temperatures will gradually warm up into the mid to upper 70s by the middle of the week for the Spring Breakers.
Have a great weekend and hope you get some rainfall at your home!
