CORPUS CHRISTI — We had plenty of wind over the course of the weekend, along with very hot temperatures. Today was no exception with an afternoon high in the middle 90s officially out at the airport.

Upper-level high pressure is moving to the northwest and a weak disturbance will slide down the Central Plains tomorrow and give us a rare northerly flow in the upper-levels of the atmosphere. This will push a weak frontal boundary into North Texas on Monday and eventually all the way down into our area before stalling out. As it does so, our chances of rain will pick up. Especially Tuesday and into Wednesday morning. Some locations could pick up close to an inch to one and a half inches of rain. On average though, we'll see around half an inch.

In the meantime, for tonight we'll see partly cloudy skies, mild and humid conditions with an overnight low of 76. Winds: SE 6-12 MPH

Monday we'll see a good mix of clouds and sun with a few isolated thundershowers and less wind. High: 95 Wind: ESE 8-16 MPH

Tuesday and Wednesday, again the front will stall in the area and we'll see scattered thundershowers in the area. Some could be locally heavy. With the extra clouds and rain, highs on Tuesday and Wednesday may struggle to get to the lower 90s. Overnight lows will dip in the lower 70s, even possible to see some upper 60s inland! That'll be a nice treat.

We are nearing 5 inches below normal for this time of year in the rainfall department, so hopefully you get some rain at your house.

We clear out by the end of the week with lots of sun and hot temperatures taking over again. Winds increase for next weekend and we'll re-introduce a chance of a few isolated showers. Though looks to be too much wind to see anything significant at this time.

Have a great week!
