CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Weak high pressure over South Texas set the stage for dense fog that reduced visibility to less than 1/8 mile early today, and more fog is expected for your Monday morning drive.

Southeast winds return by late Monday and will warm things up through midweek, but plan for a windy, cool Christmas Eve and a mild Christmas Day. A series of upper level disturbances gliding through the Rockies and across the Southern Plains will draw Gulf moisture into the Coastal Bend, but not enough to allow any significant rain chances with a late-Wednesday cold front.

The front will bring much colder air into the region, however, and near freezing temperatures are likely early Christmas morning. After a quick warm-up Friday, another cold front should induce isolated showers for your Saturday.

Highs will be in the 60s and 70s, except upper 50s Christmas Eve. Lows will be in the 30s and 40s, except 50s and 60s Tuesday and Wednesday mornings.
