CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Southwesterly flow aloft will deliver another round of high heat to South Texas before a moderate cold front brings some badly needed rain to the area along with cooler temperatures for a couple of days following the front.

Tonight will be quiet but sticky and very warm with patchy light fog and a low of 75.

Tuesday we will have sunshine through high clouds generally light winds and scorching hot with a near record high of 94.

Tuesday night will be tranquil early then increasing clouds with scattered thundershowers developing toward daybreak and a low near 70.

Wednesday expect numerous thundershowers (especially western half of the Coastal Bend) breezy and much cooler with a high of only 77.

Rain ends by Wednesday evening but skies stay mostly cloudy.
