CORPUS CHRISTI, TEXAS — Temperatures will come down a bit the next few days as rain chances increase.

An upper-level disturbance in central Texas will generate showers and storms mainly to our north today but a few could make it into our northwestern counties tonight as the disturbance drifts to the south.

Another tropical wave moving in from the Gulf Friday and Saturday will bring a better chance of rain Friday night and Saturday as deep tropical moisture increases.

A stronger cold front is expected to arrive early Wednesday morning, cooling us down later next week.

Thursday will still be hot and humid with less wind as the high reaches 95 in Corpus Christi to the upper 90s inland and lower 90s at the coast. The heat index will reach 104-109 this afternoon with southeast winds at 8-18 mph. Isolated showers are possible today and tonight.

Spotty showers and t-storms are possible Friday with highs in the low to mid-90s.

Showers will increase Saturday keeping our temperatures in the lower 90s.
