CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — The cold front that moved through the area yesterday afternoon has really brought some brisk winds into South Texas and much cooler temperatures as well. The winds have been gusting close to 35 MPH near the coastline and have, for the most part, stay sustained around 20MPH for several hours now. With the colder temperatures in place, that will make it feel just a bit on the colder side as you make your way out the door.

Today we'll trade the mid to upper 70s we had yesterday and only manage the low 60s this afternoon with lots of sunshine, dry air, and windy conditions as well. This will create choppy to occasionally rough bays, so boaters, mariners and fisherman please use caution. Small Craft Advisories are also in place. The wind will stay elevated for much of the day, especially near the coast where 15-25MPH winds will likely be prevalent. The winds will begin to subside by later tonight.

With less wind and clear skies, it'll be another cold morning on Friday with overnight lows in the upper 30s to low 40s for many.

We'll still plenty of sunshine to end out the work week with sunny skies.

On Saturday, an upper-level disturbance will move from west to east through Texas and that may trigger a stray shower or two in the area, but not much in the way of rain. Clouds will certainly be more noticeable though. Either way, mornings will start cold to chilly in the low 40s and afternoon highs will manage the upper 60s to near 70.

An extra re-enforcing cool-air front will push in Monday late afternoon so ahead of that, we'll manage the low 70s for highs to start next week, then on Friday we'll go back into the upper 60s with sunny skies.

Unfortunately, rainfall does not look promising at least in the next 7-days.

Have a great day!
