CORPUS CHRISTI - Despite having the initial frontal passage through the early part of the day, the temperatures still reached the 80s for many locations. One thing that I'm sure everyone noticed were the winds howling out of the west-northwest around 30-40mph sustained. Gusts approached 50mph in some locations.
Tonight, winds will still be on the breezy side out of the north-northwest around 15-25mph, especially along the coastline under clear skies. Temperatures will fall rapidly into the overnight hours with a light freeze possible for our northern counties. Wind chill values will likely all fall below freezing for the entire Coastal Bend as upper to lower 20s are expected.
Wednesday, expect mostly clear skies through the day with a few passing clouds overhead. Temperatures will still be on the chilly side as they struggle to get out of the 50s and winds gradually relaxing by Wednesday night.
We warm it up into the 70s by Friday afternoon ahead of our next front that will arrive Friday evening and drop temperatures back into the 60s for the weekend. There is only an isolated shot at some rainfall Friday as the front approaches and passes through. Beginning next week, another storm system approaches that could deliver another shot at some isolated rainfall across the region as well.
