After a few rounds of severe weather last week, we had a very nice weekend to enjoy with some sunshine and relatively light winds in the area.  Of course dewpoints and humidity were on the high side, but we are getting to that time of year where these high values are going to be staying with us for months on end.

As a few weak frontal boundaries get close to the Coastal Bend and then run out of gas, we are going to remain in an unsettled weather pattern here and the result is going to be plenty of cloud coverage, almost a daily opportunity for showers and thundershowers, warm temperatures and humid conditions.

Tonight, we’ll see the cloud coverage begin to increase along with a good breeze out of the east-southeast at 7-14 MPH.  Low temperatures will only do the middle 70s at best.

Monday, a weak boundary meandering throughout South Texas will be a focal point of some widely scattered showers and thundershowers in the area.  Cloud coverage will be plentiful and the showers and storms that do form will have heavy downpours, strong wind and some hail possible.  The Storm Prediction Center has all of the Coastal Bend in a Marginal Risk for severe weather.  Certainly don’t expect storms all day long, as the opportunity will be greater later in the day and evening and going into Tuesday morning.  High on Monday will be 83.  Winds: ESE 10-20 MPH.

Tuesday will begin with that opportunity for some showers and thunderstorms then remain mainly cloudy with a bit more wind out of the south-southeast at 15-25 MPH.  High: 86

Wednesday and Thursday we’ll see more clouds, but most of the rainfall will move into central and northern parts of the state.  Highs will shoot to the upper 80s to low 90s.

Then on Friday and into Mother’s Day Weekend, another weak frontal boundary will edge into South Texas and stall and serve as another culprit for scattered thundershowers in the area not only for Friday, but Saturday, Sunday and into early next week.  Highs in the 80s and low in the 70s.

Have a great week and we’ll post any watches/warnings as they get issued by the National Weather Service in the event of strong storms.
