6WEATHER Day Planner for Tuesday 10-8-19.JPG

CORPUS CHRISTI — Well the first cold front of the season was less than impressive here in South Texas as temperatures still managed to reach the 90s. Much of the cooler air associated with this boundary will remain in central and north Texas, but we will see some slightly drier air come down tonight and into Tuesday.

This evening will be fair and mild with overnight temperatures falling into the upper 60s. We'll look for 68 here in Corpus Christi. Wind: NNE 6-12 MPH

Tuesday looks very nice and and just above seasonal average with highs near 90. Inland communities will reach the lower 90s with a good amount of afternoon sunshine. Wind: NNE 7-14 MPH.

Southeastern winds will return back into the region on Wednesday, Thursday and early Friday and that means temperatures will shoot back into the lower to mid-90s for the entire area. Will feel like summer never left.

The next big weather change comes late Friday afternoon and evening with the next cold front pushing into the area. This one is a bit stronger and we'll feel the effects of this front more than the one today. It will also come with scattered showers and thundershowers as it moves through.

Highs on Saturday & Sunday will be in the 70s with lows in the upper 50s to low 60s. However, this will just be a glancing blow as the cooler air will retreat to the north rapidly and we'll warm back near 90 by early next week.
