CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Gusty onshore flow overnight will enhance rip current risks through early Saturday. A cold front early Saturday will end that threat and induce stray showers.

Isolated to scattered showers are expected Monday, but rainfall will be modest. Expect highs in the 80s and 90s, cooling later in the week. Saturday's cold front will be weak and only shift wind to the northeast temporarily, with moisture rushing into the area again Sunday and Monday.

An upper level disturbance will bring isolated showers Monday, but those rain totals will be small and fleeting. After summer like midweek heat, expect a strong colder front late Wednesday to bring cooler but still dry conditions.

The fire threat will be greatly enhanced Thursday due to strong winds and low humidity.
