CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — A large mass of Polar high pressure is building southward through the Lone Star State late today, bringing clear skies and low humidity on a stiff northerly wind.

The combination of very low humidity and a gusty north wind will enhance fire danger on Monday, especially in the Brush Country where Saturday's rainfall did not occur. As the high settles into South Texas Tuesday morning , the combination of clear skies, light wind and low humidity will set up ideal conditions for radiational cooling.

Near freezing temperatures are expected before the high shift eastward into the Deep South. Another cold front Wednesday morning may bring isolated showers, but most of that activity will be in the coastal waters. No additional significant rainfall is expected through the coming weekend.

Temperatures will remain below normal, with highs in the 50s and 60s and lows in the 30s and 40s.
