CORPUS CHRISTI - Some big changes to our weather pattern will arrive late in the Coastal Bend in the form of a strong cold front. As the front approaches from the northeast, a line of showers and thunderstorms will be possible as it moves through between 11PM-2AM. Behind the front, gusty northerly winds will take over and clear us out with temperatures only rebounding into the 60s and 70s for afternoon highs for a couple of days.
Tonight, expect partly to mostly cloudy skies with scattered showers and thunderstorms around midnight. Some may go severe with heavy downpours, dangerous lightning, and small hail. Temperatures will drop to the upper 50s to lower 60s and a brisk northerly wind around 10-20mph.
Monday looks spectacular behind the cold front as high pressure settles in. Look for partly to mostly sunny skies and an afternoon high in the lower 70s. Winds will remain on the breezy side out of the north around 10-20mph. Boaters and mariners will need to exercise caution on the waters as Small Craft Advisories will remain in effect until 6PM Monday with seas around 5-7 feet.
Clouds will return on Tuesday and there is a slim chance of some light shower or drizzle activity throughout the day, overall the chance is not much. Also, temperatures will struggle for most of the week to get out of the 70s for highs. It isn't until the end of the work week when temperatures should rebound to the 80s.
Have a great week!
