CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Cooler, drier, and much more comfortable air has moved into the Coastal Bend courtesy of yesterday’s cold front. Morning temperatures in the 50s and 60s will quickly be replaced by highs back in the low to mid-80s for many this afternoon.
Cloud coverage will also slowly be on the rise by later this afternoon and evening as a southerly wind kicks back and gives us a return flow off the Gulf of Mexico.
Temperatures will be on a roller coaster ride the next several days courtesy of some weak cold fronts that are on the way.
The next front comes in early Sunday which will result in slightly cooler temperatures and isolated showers. We’ll warm up again Monday through Wednesday, but by Wednesday evening another front will push in giving us some cooler temperatures again and a chance for scattered showers. Rainfall amounts won’t be too high, but average around a quarter to half inch.
Today: Mainly sunny much of the day, clouds increase later, still warm and breezy…High: 83…Wind: ESE 10-20 MPH.
