CORPUS CHRISTI - A weak front came into the Coastal Bend early this morning around 3-5 AM and provided us with a great afternoon as afternoon highs managed to reach the upper 70s to lower 80s. Unfortunately, the sunny weather will not last too long as Pacific moisture will move in from the west and provide more clouds as we head towards the Easter weekend. Tonight there will be another round of some fog, particularly for the inland areas, which will drop visibility to around zero for some low lying areas. Otherwise, clouds will slowly increase from partly to mostly cloudy with overnight lows falling into the upper 50s to lower 60s. Winds: Light & Variable Saturday will be partly to mostly cloudy with intermittent sunshine throughout the day. Afternoon highs will remain on the warm side with highs in the lower 80s to upper 70s near the water. Winds will increase out of the east-southeast around 15-20mph and gust near 25-30 in the afternoon. On Easter Sunday there will be an upper-level disturbance that will move into west/north Texas and be a focus of showers and thunderstorms. Pacific moisture will be plentiful in our atmosphere in South Texas which will make for mostly cloudy to overcast skies. There is a slim opportunity for a few showers in the afternoon hours, but most of the rain will remain north us where the closed low will be located. Not expected more than a few hundredths from where showers do develop. Highs on Easter Sunday will be in the lower 80s and still breezy. Next week temperatures will begin to really warm up in the middle 80s with clouds and moisture sticking around. Like the past few days, there's enough moisture available to develop some light showers, but accumulations will be dismal and most of us will remain dry and very warm. Winds pick up to windy levels by Wednesday and Thursday.
