CORPUS CHRISTI, TX —Upper air high pressure now has moved well away from South Texas, leaving a plume of deep tropical moisture that well keep near normal temperatures and modest rain chances in the forecast. By late in the week, eyes will focus on the Gulf of Mexico for increasing Coastal bend rain chances. The pattern of deep east southeasterly flow means more favorable conditions for isolated showers each day, as weak waves of instability move across the region. By midweek, a low developing in the southeast Gulf of Mexico will begin a move toward the Middle to Lower Texas Coast. Expect increasing rain chances by Thursday afternoon, then numerous showers and storms Friday before diminishing a bit on Saturday. Further development of this system is not expected at this time. Rainfall totals should be between 1 and 2 inches Thursday through Saturday. Look for highs in the lower 90s, dropping into the upper 80s Friday and Saturday. Lows will remain in the middle to upper 70s.
