CORPUS CHRISTI, TEXAS — The chance of t-storms continues today into Friday and some will produce heavy rainfall.

Temperatures will come in slightly below average through Friday before they climb this weekend as a drier weather pattern sets up through early next week.

The Saharan dust is moving in and will be thickest Friday and Saturday, giving us hazy skies. The dust is forecast to thin out Sunday but another plume could arrive by the middle of next week.

Today looks partly cloudy with highs in the upper 80s to lower 90s and winds at 12-20 mph from the southeast in the afternoon. T-storms will increase in the afternoon and some could produce heavy rainfall.

Late tonight there is a chance of showers and t-storms with lows in the mid to upper 70s and a southeast breeze.

Friday we'll have another chance of thunderstorms with a few possibilities in the morning and becoming scattered in the afternoon, some with heavy rain. Highs will reach the mid-80s to low 90s.

The Saharan dust layer will give us hazy skies to start the weekend with a dry day Saturday and highs in the upper 80s to lower 90s. It will be a bit hotter Sunday with a windy afternoon. A stray shower or t-storm is possible Sunday.
