CORPUS CHRISTI, TX — Lingering surface high pressure is offsetting the effect on a weak upper level trough just northeast of the Coastal Bend late today, so any instability has no moisture to create rain showers.
There remains enough humidity in the lower layers for inland late night fog; otherwise, expect fair skies through the weekend.
Meanwhile, Tropical Depression Eta is beginning to move offshore from Honduras into the northwest Caribbean Sea, and its path will take it across Cuba as it returns to Tropical Storm force this weekend. It is then expected to turn west into the Gulf of Mexico but should remain well away from the Texas coast.
A weak cold front slides through the region Tuesday night, but only a few showers can be expected and temperatures will dip only 5 to 8 degrees in its wake. Highs will remain in the 80s, with lows in the 60s.
