CORPUS CHRISTI — We are going to be keeping a watchful eye on a frontal boundary that has gone stationary up in the Hill Country area over the next couple of days. Though there are some cooler temperatures associated with it, it is going to struggle to reach all the way down to the South Texas area. What it will provide is plenty of cloud coverage, some extra wind and small opportunities for a few stray showers/sprinkles Thursday and into the weekend.
Some coastal fog is being observed this morning which is dropping visibility down below a mile from Rockport down to the Flour Bluff area and into parts of the city of Corpus Christi. Residents are urged to use caution on the roads this morning. It will take some time for that to burn off.
Today, we’ll see mainly cloudy conditions with a few stray showers possible. Accumulation amounts will not be overly impressive and average only a few hundredths to a couple of tenths at best. High temperatures will still be on the warm and muggy side around 78. Wind: SE 10-20 MPH
Tonight, another round of sea fog will be possible. Temperatures will struggle to get out of the mid to upper 60s for lows, so it’ll be muggy and damp, especially for coastal areas.
Friday, we’ll see a little bit more in the way of sunshine and therefore it’ll be slightly warmer with a high of 80. Still breezy with winds out of the southeast around 10-20 MPH.
Saturday and into Sunday, clouds will dominate. A couple of stray showers are possible, but winds may be too strong to yield any of those raindrops. Most will get pushed into the San Antonio area and into East Texas. Highs will be near 80 both days with lows in the mid to upper 60s.
Monday, around noon to the early afternoon, a cold front will slide into the area. This will have some cooler air associated with it and it will also bring some scattered showers into the region. We’ll average around a quarter to half inch of rainfall for some lucky locations. Highs on Monday will still be in the mid-70s.
Tuesday and into Wednesday, the cooler and drier air will filter in and highs will drop into the 60s and low 70s; more seasonable. Morning lows will fall into the low 50s. Clouds hold strong though.
Have a great day!
