CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — A soggy weather pattern remains stuck over the region courtesy of a weak frontal boundary that is hovering nearby just off the coastline along with an upper-level disturbance over the Desert Southwest that is giving us a good southwesterly flow of Pacific moisture streaming overhead.

The results are cloudy, dreary, misty and foggy conditions that many of us are experiencing for the start of Thursday.

Roads are damp and that is making them slick, so use caution on your early commute and be sure to give yourself just a few extra minutes to arrive to your destinations safely.

Early morning fog and mist will stick around through the late morning hours and much of the day will be mainly cloudy and cool with a high in the upper 60s to low 70s. Winds will remain low from the south around 6-12 mph.

Tonight, another round of fog and mist will be possible, however a few isolated showers are possible favoring coastal regions. Overnight lows are forecast to fall into the upper 50s to low 60s with generally light winds. Rainfall amounts are still expected to be low with averages around a few tenths of an inch at best.

By Friday afternoon, we’ll see the clouds break apart some to see some sunshine, especially inland. That will allow temperatures to warm up nicely in the upper 70s.

A weak front stalls in the area early in the weekend and that will result in more clouds and a few stray showers; however, winds will be increasing Saturday and more so on Sunday so the chance of rain is limited and will be pushed north.

Extra wind and some sunshine peeking through the clouds will allow temperatures to warm into the low 80s on Sunday and into Monday when another cold front pushes in about midday and then slightly cooler and drier air will filter in.

Have a great day!
