It’s one thing to be a little warm on the first day of fall, but seriously—it’s now October! Believe it or not, it’s been worse before. Back in 2012, Corpus Christi hit 101 degrees in the middle of October. Fortunately, there are no 100-degree days in the forecast, but fall doesn’t look to be arriving anytime soon.

Friday’s forecast

We’ll still have lots of moisture in the air on Friday which will allow us to have partly cloudy skies. But, it may also lead to a few showers popping up, especially along the sea breeze.

Temperatures will be toasty yet again, with highs near 90 degrees. As with the past few mornings, we may have to contend with a little bit of fog for the inland locations.

Saturday and Sunday

Rain chances look to increase another notch by Saturday and Sunday. Isolated showers are likely to pop up both days, but it certainly won’t be a washout. Most of the day will bring partly cloudy skies and breezy conditions with highs near 90 degrees.

Tropics Watch

An area of disturbed weather currently sits in the Caribbean and is forecast to move into the Gulf of Mexico by next week. Tropical development will be possible as it moves northward, but the currently forecast steering pattern looks to take it to the northern Gulf coast as opposed to the Texas coast. But it’s still very early in the development of this system, so for now we’ll just have to watch it.
