CORPUS CHRISTI, TX — Saturday morning's cold front ushered in much drier air to South Texas and delivered a fair and mild weekend, but Gulf moisture is poised to return by early week.

Rain chances will be minimal, with isolated showers and thunderstorms Wednesday.

Better rain chances are in store next Sunday. Relaxed rules for area beaches made for a good turnout both yesterday and today.

Expect more fair to partly cloudy and warm but increasingly humid conditions early in the week, then a late Wednesday cold front promises isolated showers and a few thunderstorms.

More mild and dry air returns for Thursday before quickly shifting into the Deep South.

An upper level ridge should bring the warmest afternoon on the week on Friday, then an approaching disturbance increases clouds and limits heating for the weekend.

Isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms provide the best chance of rain next Sunday.

Highs will be in the 80s, except lower 90s on Friday, with lows in the middle 70s, except upper 60s Wednesday and Thursday.
