CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — This week features pair of cold fronts; a weak one today and a second, stronger one Thursday night.
The first system will have little impact on the region other than a brief wind shift; the second has better upper-air support, plentiful moisture, and delivers scattered showers with below-normal temperatures.
Gulf moisture tonight will be confined to the lowest layers of the atmosphere, but clear skies above will serve to generate areas of early-morning fog.
We will see that same pattern again tomorrow night, but a stronger cold front late Thursday will bring isolated to scattered showers that should persist through much of Friday.
With a strong north wind and extensive cloud cover, expect Friday temperatures about 15 degrees lower than Thursday afternoon.
A quick turnaround is expected over the weekend, with highs returning to the 80s.
Another cold front should bring isolated showers for your Monday.
Rainfall totals for the coming week will be modest; less than a half inch.
