CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Our temperatures are about to take a big downturn over the weekend and next week.
Gulf and Pacific moisture will build up ahead of an upper-level disturbance and a moderate cold front to produce some badly needed rain for the area (but not enough to end the drought) and take temperatures from cooler to colder starting early Saturday with frontal passage and lasting through all of next week.
Tonight will be hazy warm and sticky with a low of 72 under cloudy skies.
Friday expect lots of clouds breezy warm and humid with scattered thundershowers increasing from west to east by early evening into the overnight hours with a warm high of 83.
Friday night showers and a few thundershowers likely, turning cooler late with a low of 63.
Saturday expect more showers and thundershowers some with locally heavy rain especially northern areas with a high of only 68.
The rain ends Saturday night and much cooler with a low near 50 and increasing northerly winds.
Stay Tuned and stay warm.
