CORPUS CHRISTI — A cold front moving through the Central Plains today will do a couple of things for us this Friday.

First, we’ll see winds begin to increase by this afternoon out of the South-Southeast around 15-25 miles per hour with some higher gusts possible. Second, temperatures are forecast to shoot through the roof today with lower 90s here in the city of Corpus Christi and low 100’s inland.

If you are working outdoors for a prolonged period of time, be sure to seek the shaded spots frequently to stay cool and drink plenty of water to stay hydrated.

Light fog in the morning will be dissipated by noon and it’ll be a very hot, hazy, and windy day in the Coastal Bend.

The frontal boundary to our north arrives Saturday morning, but it’ll still be warm and above normal. The highest rainfall chances remain well north of us and outside a stray shower, we’ll remain dry.

The weekend looks pleasant with lots of sun and highs in the low to mid-80s with morning lows in the 60s.
