Our first cold front of the season moved through Monday, although it didn't feel like it with highs in the 90s and a record high in Corpus Christi. Drier, slightly cooler air is moving in for Monday night and Tuesday with morning lows in the 60s and highs staying in the 80s to near 90 Tuesday with a northerly breeze and lower humidity. Winds will shift to the southeast Wednesday and temperature and humidity will start to rise with highs in the low 90s by Thursday. A stronger cold front is forecast to move through during the day Friday with much cooler and drier air moving in behind it Friday night and Saturday. It will feel like fall this weekend as we stay in the 70s for highs Saturday and low 80s Sunday with plenty of sunshine. Winds will be gusty and from the north Friday night into the first half of the day Saturday but will be lighter Sunday. Nights will drop into the upper 50s to lower 60s Friday and Saturday nights.
