CORPUS CHRISTI - It was certainly nice to see some rainfall in the overnight hours which lead to a few lucky spots receiving an inch to an inch and a half under the heavier thunderstorms. However, for most, the average rainfall amount was only about a quarter of an inch. Something is certainly better than nothing as we are just over four inches below normal for the year.
Tonight, the clouds will begin to stream overhead once again as a relatively mild and muggy night is in store as temperatures fall into the upper 60s to lower 70s. Winds will be out of the north-northwest around 5-10mph.
Mother's Day will be warm and humid with a healthy mix of clouds and sun with a few showers and thunderstorms still possible. Highs will range from the upper 70s to mid-80s in the afternoon. The upper level low which brought us all our rainfall the past few days will hover to our west in Mexico and fire up a few showers, though most of that should remain to the south and west of us. At this point, cannot rule out a stray shower or thunderstorms for the area.
The pesky low will remain in place out to our west giving some rain chances to areas along the Rio Grande and Rio Grande Valley for the next few days and mainly throw cloud cover our way. However, beginning on Tuesday the low will finally meander to the east and give us the opportunity for a few showers until Wednesday. Rainfall amounts will not be much though. Highs remain in the 80s the next several days with mild and muggy nights.
Happy Mother's Day to all areas Mom's!
