CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — South Texas needed this weekend of fair and warming conditions after an historic spate of bitter cold, ice and snow.
Southeasterly flow returned Gulf moisture and warmth this afternoon, sending afternoon temperatures deep into the 70s after a foggy but mild night. A pre-dawn cold front Monday will bring only slight cooling and isolated showers.
No major cold outbreaks are expected this coming week, although a second cold front Thursday morning will mean scattered showers and highs in the lower to middle 60s. In fact, with highs in the 60s and 70s and lows in the 40s and 50s, temperatures are to remain near normal for the week to come.
