A Tropical Wave Could Make Wetter Weather For Part Of The Weekend

CORPUS CHRISTI- We have a complicated forecast for the weekend based on the movement and strength of the tropical wave in the southwest Gulf. It is expected to arrive on Sunday with abundant tropical moisture and that would mean significant rainfall for the area for the first time in a week. Any change in direction to the north or development (unlikely) would delay tropical showers until Monday or prevent them from happening at all.

Tonight will be tranquil again with mainly clear skies light winds and a comfortable low of 74.

Saturday we will once again have lots of sunshine light winds until a late afternoon sea breeze kicks in more humid and hot with a high of 96 and a heat index near 100.

Sunday will definitely be different with the tropical wave arriving with more clouds and wind and scattered showers and thundershowers and a high of 94.

Enjoy your weekend.
