CORPUS CHRISTI, TX — Yesterday's cold front returned the Coastal Bend to near normal temperatures and ushered in dry air that will persist into early next week.
Upper-level high pressure in the Great Plains will keep the quiet pattern in place before it weakens Tuesday and Wednesday.
The dry continental high-pressure overhead now will not move significantly, since light northerly flow in the upper air keeps conditions stagnant for several more days.
The surface ridge will gradually shift east and return onshore flow by early next week.
Gulf moisture allows isolated to scattered rain showers by Tuesday and Wednesday.
Meanwhile, the tropics remain inactive across the Atlantic Basin. Expect highs in the lower 90s, with lows moderating from the upper 60s to the middle 70s.
