CORPUS CHRISTI - Summer-like temperatures have really unfolded over much of South Texas as temperatures this afternoon have pushed the lower 90s with some upper 70s to lower 80s along the coastline. Winds have finally relaxed some over the region, but the further we head into the evening hours the higher those values will go.
Tonight, a few clouds will return as temperatures fall in the lower 60s. Dewpoint temperatures will also be in the upper 50s to lower 60s as well so it will be a bit muggy out there. Winds will have generally an easterly component to them and be blowing around 10-15mph as a weak frontal boundary eases into the area and aides in bringing a few clouds, but no rain and hardly much of a cool down.
Tuesday we will see a mix of clouds and sun, with more clouds than today, with temperatures into the lower 80s (versus the upper 80s and 90s being observed this afternoon). Winds will also increase out of the east-southeast around 10-20mph.
The frontal boundary that moves through late tonight will ease back to the north as a warm front in our direction and create an overrunning pattern of moisture and kick off a few showers for the South Texas area. This will occur as another frontal boundary begins to move through early Wednesday morning.
Have a great day!
