CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Well, the upper-level disturbance that moved through the South Texas area over the last 48-hours or so is not taking off to the northeast and upper-level high pressure is replacing it and will result in much quieter conditions and promote sunshine under partly cloudy skies, warm temperatures and a return of the gusty winds.

Though not many of us received some beneficial rainfall along the coast, officially out at Corpus Christi International we received .17” on Monday, some our inland communities really benefited with average amounts of rain around 1-2 inches with some spotty areas received around 3-6”. Some of this fell out in the watershed, which is good for everyone. Not nearly enough needed to put worries to bed, but certainly better than receiving nothing at all.

Outside of a stray shower left over today with our storm system exiting, we’ll be under partly cloudy skies with seasonal temperatures and a gentle breeze.

As the upper-level high pressure system takes over, our weather pattern will not change much over the next several days with highs in the mid to upper 80s and morning lows in the low 70s.

A couple of frontal boundaries will move into North Texas over the upcoming weekend and bring them rainfall chances. Those fronts are forecast to stall well north of us and outside of a stray shower that may migrate in our neck of the woods, most of us will be dry, warm and windy.

Just a reminder that the official start of the Atlantic Hurricane Season in 35 days away. Do you and your family have a plan in place? What about an emergency kit? Just some things to think about as we head into hurricane season.
