CORPUS CHRISTI - We had a lot more cloud cover this afternoon and temperatures improved when you compare to yesterday's high that tied a record set back in 1971 of 92 degrees. Most of the region saw 80s while areas in our southern counties around Falfurrias reached the 90 degree mark once again.
Tonight, a weak frontal boundary will move through the area and give way to a few showers across South-central Texas as it eases its way to the south. Winds will be brisk out of the northeast around 15-25mph with higher gusts and it's for this very reason that most of the rainfall will stay as just showers and limit the amount of thunderstorms that could be produced. Overnight lows will dip into the 60s.
Wednesday will be similar to today with mostly cloudy skies and temperatures may a degree or two cooler than this afternoon. Winds will be the main story for tomorrow as gusts could go as high as 35-40+mph.
We will continue to warm up as we head towards the weekend as clouds remain in the forecast. There is another chance of seeing a few sprinkles/showers on Thursday thru Friday as moisture continues to move in from the Gulf. Still, those rainfall totals will not be anything to get overly excited about. Models are coming into more of an agreement now that a bit of a stronger front will arrive on Sunday that will lead to cooler temperatures and more seasonal weather for next week.
Have a great day!
