CORPUS CHRISTI - It sure felt like summer today with lots of sun over South Texas and temperatures reaching the upper 90s and lower 100s for most of the area. That is not the case in central and north Texas where a very late-season front is moving through and bringing some clouds, rain, and slightly cooler temperatures. Northern portions of the state maxed out in the upper 70s! It won't cool down quite that significantly here, but the front will nudge its way into our area and eventually fizzle out giving way to just a few stray to isolated showers beginning Friday evening and into the weekend. Tonight we'll look for partly cloudy and humid conditions with lows falling into the mid to upper 70s. Winds: South 4-8mph Friday will feature more clouds in South Texas with only a few stray showers in the area. Temperatures will still be hot with middle 90s expected. Depending on the location of the fizzling front, there may be a few spots of heavier showers in our northern areas. Winds: SE 10-20mph Heading into the weekend, we'll maintain an isolated chance of a few showers and thunderstorms as the front meanders in South Texas. This is not a big rainfall event for the entire area and some residents will get much more than others. If you have outdoor activities planned, just keep the umbrella handy. For now, northern portions of the Coastal Bend have the better chance at rainfall versus our southern locations. Tropical Wave Invest 93-L continues to sit out in the Atlantic and move towards Cuba and the Dominican Republic. It has not strengthened much over the last 24 hours, but is showing some signs of organization. The National Hurricane Center has a 70% chance of formation in the next 48 hours.
