CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Humidity has certainly returned back to the Coastal Bend and it is ever so evident in the amount of fog we are seeing across the area early this morning.

Though it's not bad in the city of Corpus Christi, we are seeing some of that fog fall below a mile for some of our inland communities.

Motorists are urged to use caution on the early morning commutes. Allow yourself plenty of time to arrive to your destinations.

Most of the fog will burn off by the mid-morning hours and we'll be on our way to another sunshine-filled day with a few clouds making for partly cloudy to mainly sunny conditions and a nice warm high in the low 80s. Winds will be more southeasterly today around 7-14 mph providing a nice afternoon breeze.

Boaters and mariners, there will be another Coastal Flood Advisory that begins at 5 p.m. this afternoon through 1 a.m. Friday. Water could reach up to the dunes again during high tides. Bob Hall Pier's high tide will be at 9:34 p.m. and at the Port Aransas jetties at 9:15 p.m. Also for those who will be on the water, there is a High Rip Current risk today as well.

Tonight, the humidity will continue to very much be a part of our forecast and will lead to more fog development by Friday morning. Overnight lows will fall into the low 60s in Corpus Christi ranging to the upper 50s inland. Still, a pleasant night will be in store across our area.

Look for the overnight lows in the 60s, with fog and warm highs in the 80s through the weekend and early next week.

The frontal boundary that we were watching in the Pacific Northwest is taking a beating in the Rockies and very quickly losing its punch. This is resulting in a change in our local forecast early next week.

A later arrival means warm and humid conditions will stick around for a bit longer and now the front is forecast to arrive early Wednesday morning. We'll be keeping a close eye on that.

With that frontal passage, a brisk northerly wind will pick up and, like before, only expecting a passing shower as it moves in as the associated cooler and drier air filters in behind it. Though don't expect a drastic cool-down.

Stay cool and have a great day!
