CORPUS CHRISTI — Coastal sea fog continues to hang around the Coastal Bend this morning and is reducing visibility below a mile for some locations. For the next couple of days, we'll look for that sea fog to continue to stick around overnight, into mid-morning hours, and then into the evening. A Dense Marine Fog Advisory is in effect until 2PM.

A stationary cold front has been meandering back and forth just north of our viewing area. Behind the boundary, temperatures are slightly cooler and drier and out ahead of it, the air is very humid and warm. We'll likely stay on the humid and warmer side of the front today, but it could temporarily reach our far western and northern locations and bring a slight drop in temperatures before lifting northward back as a warm front on Saturday.

Today will be another very warm and breezy day with an afternoon high of 82 in Corpus Christi. Winds will be out of the southeast around 10-20 MPH.

Tonight, the sea fog will be near coastal areas and it'll be muggy and mild again with a low of 64.

Saturday will be warm, mainly cloudy and windier with sustained winds around 15-25 from the southeast.

More clouds and warm temperatures are in store for Sunday ahead of a cold front that will arrive Monday afternoon. As that occurs, scattered showers will move into South Texas. Some locations could pick up around a quarter to half inch of rainfall before coming to an end early Tuesday.

Tuesday and into Wednesday it'll be cooler and drier with highs in the 60s and low 70s, right near seasonal levels. Morning lows will drop into the 50s.

Have a great weekend!
