CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — After a cold start this morning we are looking for a steady warming trend into the weekend.

Our high today will in the low 60s, but by tomorrow the temperature will climb back into the 70s and soar to 80 by Monday.

Early next week, we'll have warm and windy conditions. Those temperatures will be a big contrast from this morning, when it was 34 at Corpus Christi International Airport and lower in other areas of the Coastal Bend.

One reason that conditions are especially comfortable is because the dew point is unusually low. But the gulf air will return with higher humidity and warming conditions by the weekend.

Today: Chilly AM. Sunny and mild. Light winds. High 61.
Friday: Sunny and mild. High 70.
Saturday: Sunny and warmer. Breezy afternoon winds. High 72.
Sunday: Partly cloudy and warmer. Windy. High 78.
Monday: Partly cloudy, warm and humid. High 80.
