Drying Out Today; Showers Return Tuesday & Wednesday

CORPUS CHRISTI - Not a bad weekend in the rainfall department as some area locations picked up well above one to two inches over the Mother's Day holiday. Officially here in the city, we picked up three tenths (.30") of an inch bringing our monthly total to just over six tenths (.60") bringing our overall deficit for the year just over four and a quarter inches. Obviously those who have been lucky enough to get the heavier downpours, rainfall for the year is looking decent.

Today we will dry out somewhat as the sunshine will return under partly cloudy skies. Temperatures should max out in the middle 80s. Winds: ESE 10-20mph.

Tonight the clouds will return with relatively cool temperatures in the middle to upper 60s. Winds: ESE 4-8mph. Some dense patchy fog will be possible going into Tuesday morning.

Showers and a few thunderstorms return the forecast for Tuesday and on into Wednesday as the upper level low that brought all the rains begins to move northeast across the state. Highs will cool a few degrees in the upper 70s to lower 80s. Beginning on Thursday temperatures really begin to heat back up under partly to mostly sunny skies, breezy conditions, and highs in the upper 80s to (90s out west) with overnight lows returning to the middle 70s.

Have a great week!
