CORPUS CHRISTI - We had a similar day to yesterday with temperature readings ranging from the upper 70s along the coast to near 90 for some of our southern counties. The winds are still blowing out there as we topped out right around 35mph in the city with an increase in the cloud cover as well.
Tonight, we will keep a healthy dose of clouds streaming overhead with the winds staying elevated around 10-20mph. This will keep temperatures very mild as we dip only into the upper 60s to lower 70s.
Monday is not going to be much different than today or Saturday with the exception of temperatures warming up a degree or two more in the afternoon. With plenty of wind once again in the forecast out of the southeast around 15-30mph, the gusts could range near 45-50 and create a bit of a hazy look outside.
The temperatures and wind, sounding like a broken record, continue on Tuesday as most locations should reach the upper 80s to even some mid-90s inland. A cold front looks to arrive Wednesday around the noontime hour which will bring a halt to the warming trend and take our temperatures back near or below seasonal average. The winds will calm down prior to the fronts passing, but as it moves through, expect those winds to pick right back up and gust out of the north. Rain chances are all over the place as forecast models have been having a very tough time these past few weeks with frontal boundaries. At this point I am not optimistic about our rain chances in the city, but if any does come up I think the better chance will remain for our northern and eastern counties around the Victoria Crossroads and near Houston. We'll continue to monitor that rain opportunity the closer we get to Wednesday.
Have a great week!
