CORPUS CHRISTI - The upper-level low that was the culprit for a few showers and some thunderstorms the past few days here in the Coastal Bend has moved off to the northeast creating some devastating weather in the form of tornadic activity for the northern and eastern parts of Texas in the early Thursday morning hours. As the low continues to move away, our rain chances will move away as well and warm, dry, and breezy conditions will now take over our area.
Today expect mostly cloudy skies to start the day with gradual clearing taking place by the early afternoon with lots of sun and a steamy high of 91 degrees. Winds will be moderately strong out of the SSE around 15-25mph and gusting around 35-40.
Tonight, some low level clouds return and low level moisture will make for a mild and muggy night with an overnight low in the mid-70s. Winds: SE 10-15
The weather pattern does not change a whole lot for the end of the week, the upcoming weekend, and through the start of next week. Highs will range from the lower 90s in the afternoon with nighttime lows in the middle to upper 70s. Winds will remain constant as well through the 7-day extended with no rain and a fair mix of clouds and sun (more sun though).
