Showers & Thunderstorms Increase This Afternoon

CORPUS CHRISTI - We are moving from a relatively stable atmosphere to an unstable one as our rain chances will begin to increase beginning this afternoon with the combination of a weak cold front and upper level disturbance moving into South Texas.

Today will be very hot as temperatures shoot into the upper 80s to lower 90s this afternoon despite ample cloud cover. Any break in the clouds that will allow sunshine through will result in temperatures to skyrocket which will help to destabilize the atmosphere even further. Showers & thunderstorms will increase in coverage beginning this afternoon. Winds: SE 10-20mph

Tonight expect there to be isolated to scattered thunderstorms in the vicinity with damp and mild conditions. Lows will drop into the lower 70s. Winds will eventually turn to the northeast as a weak front eases in around 10-15mph.

This afternoon through Saturday will hold the best chances for thunderstorm activity. Storm intensity should begin to taper off to only a few showers as we head into Mother's Day and for Monday and Tuesday of next week. Some rainfall amounts could become locally heavy and we will continue to monitor in the event any storm goes severe.
