CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Though many of us stayed dry yesterday, the official total at Corpus Christi International Airport was a trace of rainfall.
There were a couple of storms that sparked inland around Ben Bolt and near the Alice area that dropped heavy rain and brought strong winds to the Coastal Bend.
We’ll have a repeat of that today, but the showers and storms will be more widespread and become numerous to likely in the region.
Some of the rainfall will be heavy at times and could cause some localized flash flooding since our grounds are still very saturated. This storm chance will last from the mid-morning hours all the way through the afternoon and early evening.
We’ll see a temporary lull in activity, before re-firing early tomorrow morning and becoming more widely scattered Friday and Saturday.
All this rainfall is courtesy of an upper-level disturbance to our west that continues to send waves of moisture/instability towards South Texas and as a result, keeps rain in the forecast.
Sunday the rainfall will be isolated in nature, so that looks to be the driest day of the two weekend days. Winds will increase slightly next week and will start to send rain chances north of us.
However, we’ll see isolated showers Monday and Wednesday. Temperatures will warm up as well.
