Not As Wet For Now But Wait Until Next Week

CORPUS CHRISTI- Rich tropical moisture will continue to slowly taper off across the area as a tropical low develop in the S.W. Gulf of Mexico the next few days. Tuesday (today) was once again a big day for rainfall across the city and a good portion of the area. Rainfall amounts reached 1-2 inches in several areas of the Coastal Bend. The tropical development of the low to our southeast and its movement this way will have a huge bearing on how much rain we get. If it stays to the east of us and goes north we will get little to no rain, however if it makes landfall near Brownsville next week we would get a lot of rainfall that would close the door on our long standing drought. (See picture)

Tonight will be be warn and stuffy with isolated showers near the coast again and a low of 77.

Wednesday and Thursday expect more sun a lot less rain with only isolated showers humid and hotter with only a gentle sea breeze and a high Wednesday of 92 and 93 Thursday.

Stay dry and stay tuned.
