CORPUS CHRISTI, TX — Weak high pressure at the surface and in the upper air is maintaining dry, stable conditions over South Texas, bringing yet another clear, mild day to the Coastal Bend.
Patchy inland fog will return overnight, but no rain is expected this week. Meanwhile, Tropical Storm Eta may yet pose a U.S. threat.
Eta is now inland along the Nicaragua-Honduras border, causing massive flash flooding. It will return to the Northwest Caribbean this weekend and move toward Florida and eventually the northern Gulf coast. No significant impact from Eta is expect along the Texas coast.
Here in the Coastal Bend, skies have remained fair through the first half of this week due to the stable weather pattern, and little change is noted in the near future. A weak upper level disturbance will drift to our north and east Thursday and Friday, bringing showers to the coastal waters but no closer.
A cold front is likely to traverse the region early next week, but little change in temperatures and only isolated showers are expected for your Tuesday and Wednesday. Highs will remain in the 80s, with lows in the 60s.
