CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — We are starting off the day with a little less fog than yesterday, but there are still some areas of patchy dense fog this morning for our inland areas across the Coastal Bend.

We'll have another cold front that will be pushing into the region today that will bring a round of isolated to scattered showers to the area that will mainly total a few hundredths to a couple of tenths of an inch of rain.

Temperatures will still top out in the middle 70s over a good portion of the region. We'll experience winds with a tad breeze out of the south around 10-20 mph and then pushing north when the front arrives later this afternoon and evening. Rainfall chances will vanish once the front passes by.

Tonight will be much cooler and clear with overnight lows back in the low 40s with west-northwesterly winds around 7-14 mph making it feel like the 30s.

Thursday and Friday look to be fantastic with highs in the 60s and morning lows in the upper 30s to lower 40s, but the afternoons will be filled with lots of sunshine.

By Saturday the clouds will begin to pick up ahead of the next cold front.

This one looks stronger than the one arriving today and we'll see scattered to numerous showers and thundershowers as that cold front moves through in the late morning to midday time frame on Sunday.

We could potentially see rainfall totals around half an inch or so.

Morning lows for Monday and Tuesday of next week will fall in the mid to upper 30s and we could see light freezes for our inland communities with highs in the upper 50s to lower 60s.

Have a great day!
