CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Skies are fair to partly cloudy over the Coastal Bend late today as a cold front slides across the region.

Ahead of the front the air is warm and humid; behind it things dry out. The front doesn't have a lot of push, however, and will stall overnight just offshore. Any cooling or drying will be brief.

Thereafter, expect highs in the 80s and lows in the 60s until a somewhat strong cold front arrives the first of next week. That system will bring isolated showers on Monday, with highs in the 70s Monday and Tuesday.
Lows the first half of the work week will dip into the 50s.

Meanwhile, Tropical Storm Eta continues to spin in the eastern Gulf of Mexico, where landfall at the end of this week should be somewhere near Pensacola FL. Sub-tropical Storm Theta is heading toward Portugal. Another area of disturbed weather in the eastern Caribbean is likely to become Iota as it moves into the Central and Western Caribbean.
