Corpus Christi was hit by the eye of hurricane Harvey in 2017, but somehow was spared the worst, since the torrential rain was ultimately the devastating feature. Fortunately, we aren’t looking for any large scale disasters with this forecast.
At 1151PM, CT, Corpus Christi was reporting a temperature of 55 degrees with clear skies and a brisk northwest wind with gusts of 20mph. There was a large synoptic low centered near Memphis, but wind patterns in the area suggest a weak surface low just off shore, helping to induce the brisk winds, though in general, the Texas Gulf Coast was ensconced in high pressure building behind the low.
High pressure is indeed going to develop at the surface, thanks mostly to a stagnated, laminar pattern at the base of a trough. This means that there isn’t likely to be an influx of warmer air, but there will be a stable environment for a couple of days. If the wind can taper off, there maybe a threat for some fog in the mornings.
