CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Temperatures are not quite as cold as they were yesterday morning, but there is still quite a bit of a chill to the air with temperatures in the 40s and 50s today.

If you aren't a fan of the cooler temperatures, don't worry as winds will begin increasing today out of the southeast. That will usher in warm and humid air off the Gulf of Mexico. As a result, we'll see a bit more in the way of cloud coverage, and also afternoon highs will start to climb as well.

This is a result of our next front that remains to our west and will arrive here on Saturday night.

Today will be breezy with a good mix of clouds and sun with a mild high of 70 degrees. Winds will be out of the southeast around 10-20 mph.

Tonight the temperatures are not forecast to drop so much and we'll bottom out in the low 60s with more humidity and an elevated breeze around 8-16 mph.

Saturday will be downright windy with sustained winds out of the south-southeast at 15-25 mph with gusts approaching 35 mph. Temperatures will also be significantly above normal with a high of 81 under partly cloudy skies.

A cold front arrives late Saturday night and will push clouds out into the Gulf and cooler air will usher into the region. By Sunday morning we'll be back in the mid-50s.

Sunshine comes into the forecast Sunday, Monday and Tuesday with near seasonal highs and lighter winds.

The winds do pick back up by Tuesday evening, however. Temperatures will climb back to near 80 on Wednesday and Thursday ahead of the next weak front Thursday evening.

Again, there is no meaningful rainfall in the forecast.

Have a great weekend!
