CORPUS CHRISTI- Rich tropical moisture is rapidly increasing across South Texas as a trio of weather features are combining together to create a very wet forecast. Tropical storm Manuel is crossing Mexico and moving this way as Invest 95-L in the southern Gulf is headed in this general direction as a cold front approaches from the north. The heavy rain we are expected over the weekend will create the illusion that a cold front has moved thru the area but it will actually stall then dissipate as it looses all upper level support and push. Rain cooled air will feel nice but temperatures return to the 90's on Monday for highs.
Tonight expect coastal showers to re-develop after midnight warm and sticky with a low of 78.
Friday we will have increasing showers and thundershowers along with more clouds very humid and a high of 89.
Friday night and Saturday will be very wet with showers and thundershowers likely and locally heavy rains expect a low of 75 and a high of only 86.
The rain tapers off on Sunday with slightly lower temperatures due to the torrential rain that are expected to precede it.
A flash flood watch is in effect through Saturday night.
