CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — The broad circulation around tropical storm Fernand has increased rich tropical moisture into the area from the Gulf.

The storm will have no direct impact here, and is no threat to this area, but it will however make our atmosphere more tropical and bring some -- but not enough -- badly need rain to the area.

The heavier and more likely rain will be south of Corpus Christi toward the LRGV, and little-to-no rain will fall in Northern parts of the Coastal Bend.

Tonight expect scattered tropical showers to form, breezy, warm and very humid with a low of 78.

Wednesday expect it to be breezy with scattered tropical showers mainly in the morning, then shifting south and west during the afternoon, very warm and humid with lots of clouds and a high of only 92.

A few of the showers will be heavy locally. Wednesday night will be warm and sticky with scattered showers and a low of 77.

Thursday we will have isolated tropical showers with considerable cloudiness. It'll still be very humid and hot with a high of 93.
