CORPUS CHRISTI - Clouds stuck around most of the Coastal Bend this afternoon and temperatures still rose into the upper 70s to lower 80s with winds howling out of the southeast around 15-30mph.
Tonight, the winds will stay elevated out of the southeast around 15-25mph under cloudy skies as temperatures will only fall into the lower 70s to upper 60s for inland locations.
Tuesday will be a transition day as a front is moving a bit ahead of schedule and will arrive in the evening hours around 8-11PM with a few showers and a couple of embedded thunderstorms. In anticipation of the front, winds will still be on the windy side out of the south around 15-30 and temperatures will warm up into the upper 80s and even lower 90s for our inland counties! Once the front moves through, there will be a brief window of winds calming down, but will pick back up shortly thereafter to a brisk northwesterly wind around 15-30 as cooler and drier air filters in. This has prompted the National Weather Service to issue a Red Flag Warning for the entire South Texas area as relative humidity values will be low and the potential wildfire threat will be elevated.
Wednesday and beyond will be followed by cooler temperatures, just slightly above normal, into the low to mid 70s and nighttime lows dropping back into the 40s and 50s. Clouds will begin to increase for the weekend.
Have a great day!
