CORPUS CHRISTI, TX — Slightly cooler air over the Coastal Bend this afternoon is being overrun by Gulf moisture, creating cloudy skies and isolated rain showers.
These showers will persist overnight and increase Monday ahead of an early Tuesday cold front. Skies will clear for Tuesday and Wednesday.
Rainfall amounts will be meager through Monday, with none expected through Wednesday as much drier air moves into the region.
Return flow begins late Wednesday, as copious amounts of Gulf moisture overspreads the area by early Thursday. Increasing instability ahead of another cold front will mean isolated showers Thursday, then scattered to numerous thunderstorms Friday and Friday night.
After a brief respite from rain chances Saturday, subtropical jet stream dynamics and tropical moisture will generate widespread rain and thunderstorms for next Sunday. Temperatures will remain at or slightly above normal for this time of year, with highs in the upper 70s to middle 80s and lows in the 60s, except upper 50s over the weekend.
