CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — A combination of a stalled frontal boundary near the coastline and a large upper-level storm system to our west will help to destabilize our atmosphere today and lead to some widely scattered to numerous showers and storms over the Coastal Bend.

A Flash Flood Watch has been issued by the National Weather Service Office here in Corpus Christi for Kleberg, Jim Wells, Live Oak, Nueces, Bee, San Patricio, Refugio and Aransas counties through 7PM Saturday. Shower and storms will be capable of producing locally heavy rainfall that may result in isolated flash flooding potential. Residents are urged to stay clear of flooded streets and TURN AROUND DON’T DROWN.

Rainfall activity will be on and off throughout the day Friday and into Saturday. Rainfall amounts of 1-3 inches will be common, but there is a chance of spotty higher amounts of 4-6 inches possible.

The upper-level low will begin to move out of the area late Saturday and into early Sunday and we’ll begin to dry out with more sunshine and much warmer temperatures.
