CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — It took a little bit of some time for our weak cold front to move in yesterday and temperatures really soared out ahead of it as we topped out at 85 degrees for the afternoon high. That was only 2 degrees away from the record for the day of 87 set back in 1965 and 18 degrees above seasonal average high temperatures.

Temperatures this morning are starting off a tad cooler, but there are still plenty of 60s on the map with a few upper 50s far inland.

This afternoon, we're still going to head above normal with an afternoon high of 76 in Corpus Christi. Inland communities will once again reach into the 80s for high temperatures. Winds will be light out of the east-northeast around 6-12 mph.

Another cold front to our west is forecast to move into the region late tonight and early tomorrow morning. The cool air associated with this front is also lagging behind the boundary itself, but we should see more 50s tomorrow morning under partly cloudy skies.

Winds will be on the breezy side for Wednesday with a high of 72 under partly cloudy skies.

Thursday will be the coolest day of the next seven across the Coastal Bend. Morning lows will begin in the upper 30s to low 40s and highs will only manage into the 60s.

Friday, Saturday and Sunday, we'll warm up again quickly as afternoon highs shoot back into the mid to upper 70s. The next cold front will move in around midday again Sunday afternoon. That will increase winds to breezy levels on Friday and then windy on Saturday. The front will allow us to start on the cooler side for the first day of February.

Rain chances unfortunately do not look great, even with all the fronts coming in.

Outside of a stray sprinkle as the fronts come in, most of the rainfall will remain way to our north.

Have a great day!
