CORPUS CHRISTI - Plenty of cloud cover is streaming over South Texas this afternoon with most of the rainfall, for the time being, staying in central and west Texas. Our winds have shifted to the east-southeast, and this is allowing some Gulf moisture to move back into our area; and coupled with an approaching system from the west, our rain chances will gradually increase the further we get into mid-week of the new year.
Tonight, look for mostly cloudy skies with moisture
continuing to increase over the area with a few spots of drizzle. Temperatures will drop into the upper 50s to lower 60s with winds out of the southeast around 6-12mph.
Monday, expect cloudy skies with stray to isolated showers over the Coastal Bend. Temperatures will warm up ahead of the approaching system from the west and get into the lower to mid-70s with winds fairly breezy out of the south at 15-25mph.
A cold front will finally sweep the area Tuesday morning, a bit later from previous forecasts, and looks to pass around 9AM-Noon. This feature will increase showers and a couple of thunderstorms in the afternoon before stalling out over the coastal waters and push more moisture back into the Coastal Bend on Wednesday.
Have a great Monday!
