CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Good morning!

A Red Flag or Fire Weather Warning will be in effect from noon to 4 p.m. for parts of the Coastal Bend. Please be careful with outdoor activities. Any sparks could get out of control quickly!

Today, temperatures will fall to the 50s and 60s throughout the day. Strong north winds will be sustained 20- 30 MPH, gusting to 40 MPH at times. These strong winds will make temps feel chilly and also make driving over bridges and overpasses difficult. Gale conditions are expected over the near shore and off shore waters, so marine activities will be treacherous today.

Mostly cloud skies linger today, but expect fewer clouds tonight into Friday. Bundle up Friday morning! Temperatures will fall to the mid-30s, with wind chills or 'feels like' temps dropping to the upper 20s and low 30s before dawn. Inland areas will want to protect the 4 P's (people, pets, plants, and pipes) through actual air temperatures will stay above freezing. Friday's highs will return to the upper 50s with more sunshine and less wind.

A gradual warm up is expected through President's Day Monday. High temperatures will once again be in the 80s s we head through next week!

Have a great day!
