PORT ARANSAS, Texas - Earlier this week an algal bloom that is commonly referred to as red tide was plaguing portions of the Texas Coast. The National Seashore and northern sections of Padre Island saw the worst of the conditions. On Thursday, the red tide extended to the southernmost section of beach in Port Aransas. As the Corpus Christi Caller Times is reporting, a well-timed cool front arrived and had an immediate impact.
Sunny skies and afternoon highs near 80 degrees are forecast for the next five days.
