CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Good morning!

This weekend will prove to be a windy one! Generally southeast winds will gust up to 30 miles per hour this afternoon. That onshore flow will draw in more moisture and humidity to our forecast. Expect increasing clouds into the beginning of this upcoming week.

Temperatures will continue to rise into the middle of the week when a cold front arrives. This front will bring our next bout of rain to the Coastal Bend. Rainfall accumulations through the next 7 days will be between 0.5-1" area-wide. While scattered showers look to begin late Monday night, the bulk of the rain will likely come on Wednesday.

Until then, expect a windy, warm, and humid Mother's Day weekend!
