CORPUS CHRISTI, TX — As drier air sweeps into the Coastal Bend late today, skies will clear and stay mostly fair through midweek.

Humidity makes a return by Tuesday, with only isolated showers Wednesday and again Saturday to show for it.

Daytime temperatures to remain above normal.

Today's rain showers were at the southern perimeter of severe weather that brought golf ball sized hail to parts of Houston, and torrential rainfall to the middle Texas coast.

The trough that induced the showers and storms continues to move east as dry air rushes in for the night.

That dry, clear air will cool into the lower 60s by daybreak Monday, but by Tuesday afternoon onshore flow returns humidity to the region.

Weak disturbances will bring the Coastal Bend isolated showers midweek and again on Saturday, but rainfall totals will be modest.

Expect highs from the middle 80s to around 90, with lows in the 60s to lower 70s.
