CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Yesterday’s cold front has brought some cooler conditions into South Texas and we received record rainfall out at the airport.
Much of the rainfall totals were a few tenths, as expected, but there was a cluster of storms that congregated near the airport area and dropped a whopping 2.32 inches of rainfall there. It broke the daily record rainfall from 1999 of 2.10 inches.
Clouds are going to hold today, tomorrow and much of the upcoming work week. We’ll see a few spots of sunshine, but mainly cloudy skies are going to dominate.
Our next big weather maker will come around midday on Wednesday in the form of another cold front. It will increase rain chances again with scattered showers and thundershowers possible along with another dose of some cooler temperatures.
And like our previous front, a couple of hundredths to a few tenths will be possible, but locally higher amounts are forecast to be fewer and far between.
