Northerly winds are ushering in milder air behind a cold front which moved through this morning. There hasn't been much rain with the front with only a spot shower mainly north of Corpus Christi. Clouds will clear quickly with sunny skies and north winds at 15-25 mph, dying down this evening.
There is an elevated fire danger due to the lower humidity, dry vegetation and windy conditions and outdoor burning should be avoided today. Also, there is a Small Craft Advisory due to northerly winds up to 25 knots, making for choppy to rough water today. There is a Coastal Flood Advisory from 1 PM to 10 PM for minor coastal flooding with water higher on beaches.
Today's highs will stay in the upper 70s and tonight will be cool with lows in the mid to upper 40s inland to near 50 in Corpus Christi and near 60 at the beaches.
The work week will start with cool nights and mild days with a slow warming trend and dry weather continuing into next weekend.
