CORPUS CHRISTI, TX — A Pacific cold front will bring isolated showers and thunderstorms overnight into early Sunday, then usher in a strong westerly wind and dangerous dry conditions.

In the predawn hours Monday, a strong Canadian cold front is pushed into the region by much colder air that will linger for the week The change will be a dramatic contrast from the muggy, cloudy conditions that features overnight fog and spotty rain showers for the past week.

The west wind for Sunday will gust over 35 miles an hour and bring very low humidity, creating dangerous fire conditions. The early Monday cold front will send maximum temperatures plummeting from near 90 on Sunday into the upper 60s on Monday.
