CORPUS CHRISTI - Winds certainly picked up this afternoon out of the southeast and has increased moisture across South Texas. More moisture means warmer temperatures back into the upper 60s and lower 70s area-wide.
Tonight, partly to mostly cloudy skies will stick as temperatures fall into the upper 50s to lower 60s across the region with relatively lighter winds out of the south around 6-12 mph.
Sunday, temperatures will continue on their warming trend and most locations will move into the lower 80s with coastal areas staying in the 70s under partly to mostly cloudy skies. It is not out of the question for a few of the thicker clouds to release a very light and brief sprinkle or two, but will certainly not be widespread either.
A strong cold front arrives on Christmas Day and looks to arrive for the first half of the day, around noon. If this is the case, sufficient time and daytime heating will take place as temperatures should reach the upper 70s and even some lower 80s. If the front arrives earlier, temperatures will need to be trended downwards as a chilly Christmas night looks promising with 30s possible by Wednesday morning.
