CORPUS CHRISTI- It was a chilly day in Corpus Christi that started at 29 degrees at the airport and 39 in the city near the water. Clouds held our temperatures way down today area wide and we had a high of only 61. Here is the detailed forecast including our next big cold front expected by mid-day on Christmas.
Canadian high pressure settled over south Texas this morning bringing the coldest temperatures of the season and near freezing in many areas. As the high moves east our winds will gradually increase from the south and that will result in a warming trend until the next strong cold front on Christmas day. It will be much colder again after that and eventually wetter as well.
Tonight will be chilly but milder than this morning with increasing clouds and humidity and light winds with a low near 40.
Saturday will be noticeably more breezy and milder with more clouds and a high of 72.
Sunday will be breezy and mostly cloudy and warmer near 80.
Christmas day will be warm and humid early then colder late with scattered showers near frontal passage and a high of 77 before turning much colder Christmas night.
