CORPUS CHRISTI - Most of the showers and thunderstorms this afternoon have remained in the northern half of our viewing area and well offshore in the Gulf of Mexico. The upper 80s and lower 90s have dominated the Coastal Bend this afternoon with plenty of sunshine. There will be an opportunity for showers and thunderstorms to form out ahead of an upper level disturbance that is situated out in West Texas and will translate into the Hill Country tonight. This shower and thunderstorm activity will begin later this evening for our northern counties, around 7-9PM, and move south for the remainder of the evening and into the overnight hours.
So the forecast for tonight calls for mild and muggy conditions with the opportunity of scattered showers and thunderstorms. Temperatures should fall into the upper 60s for our inland areas and lower 70s near the water. If the rain clears out by morning, which I think it will, there may be a few spots of some heavy fog.
Sunday will almost be a carbon-copy of today with partly to mostly sunny skies and a few showers and thunderstorms in the vicinity. Temperatures will be a tad bit cooler and should stay clear of the 90 degree weather we observed today.
A cold front still looks to move through Monday night and may ignite some additional shower activity, but a wash-out is not expected and temperatures will cool off into the upper 70s to lower 80s and night time lows dropping into the upper 50s for a couple of nights. It will warm up by next weekend and, at this time; it looks like another strong cold front will impact South Texas by early next week. We will have to monitor that one closely as it could bring another shot of significantly cooler and another shot of some rain.
A quick note, do not forget to change your clocks tonight as "Daylight Saving Time" ends officially at 2AM on Sunday morning. When you go to bed tonight, just change your clocks back and you should be in great shape.
