CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Skies remain fair with chilly mornings and warm afternoons the first half of this week, but returning Gulf moisture will moderate nights and set us up for isolated showers with a Friday evening cold front.

Fair and cooler conditions will prevail through the weekend, with another rain chance on Tuesday. The high pressure area that meant cold mornings and warm but dry afternoons will shift into the Gulf of Mexico by midweek, bringing southerly wind and increasing Gulf humidity.

A gusty south southeast wind Thursday ushers enough moisture into the region to allow a few showers with a late-day Friday cold front. Showers end quickly though, leaving a fair but cooler weekend and start of next week.

Another disturbance on Tuesday will mean isolated to scattered showers. Highs in the 70s will cool to the 60s Saturday through Monday before returning to the 70s on Tuesday. Lows will be in the 40s and 50s before warming to the lower 60s Tuesday morning.
