CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — As a cold front approaches from the west, we'll begin to see increasing southeasterly winds here in the Coastal Bend meaning that humidity will be on the rise, along with warmer temperatures.

Today, we'll see more clouds in the region and noticeably more wind as well. Afternoon high temperatures in Corpus Christi will shoot into the upper 70s to near 80 for many inland locations. Winds will be sustained around 15-25 mph with gusts near 30 mph. Small Craft Advisories are posted for the offshore waters until 6 p.m.

Tonight, winds come down some, but there will still be a good breeze with the potential for some coastal fog where winds come down enough. Overnight lows are only forecast to fall into the upper 50s to low 60s.

Thursday will be the warmest day of the next seven. We'll see afternoon high temperatures in Corpus Christi around 84 with some of our inland communities pushing the upper 80s to near 90. Winds will still be on the windy side around 15-25 mph, but a tad less than today.

Thursday night and into Friday morning, a cold front will sweep South Texas and usher in some cooler and drier air. Highs on Friday afternoon will top into the mid-60s. Winds will be breezy in the morning but should decrease by the afternoon.

Cooler temperatures will stay with us through the weekend with highs rebounding in the low 70s. However, the rainfall potential stays slim to none until the middle of next week as another front approaches the area.

Have a great day!
