T.D. # 5 Forms But Is No Threat

CORPUS CHRISTI- Nearly our entire forecast hinges on the movement, path and strength of the tropical depression #5 in the S.W. Gulf. The depression will probably become "Dolly" on Tuesday and move inland well south of here in Mexico on Wednesday and is no threat to this area. The system organizing will rob us of some of our rain as rich tropical moisture is drawn into the central of circulation and away from the Coastal Bend. In spite of that we will continue to see an increase in tropical moisture and some rain with Wednesday7 being the wettest. Tonight will be breezy very warm and sticky with a low of 79 and an isolated shower near the coast. Tuesday expect variable sunshine hot and humid in and around isolated thundershowers and a high of 93. Tuesday night expect coastal showers warm and sticky with a low of 76. Wednesday expect lots of clouds with scattered to numerous thundershowers ( a few with locally heavy rain) not as hot but very humid with a high of only 87. Less rain on Thursday and very humid.
