Mostly Cloudy Weekend with Tropical Airmass Staying in Place

CORPUS CHRISTI - There was a little more rain around this morning for the Coastal Bend, but rainfall amounts were not overly impressive with Corpus Christi International reporting two-tenths of an inch. Port Aransas officially reported just over a quarter of an inch of rain with everyone else either a trace or below a tenth. The upper-level low is already being pulled north by a storm system in the Great Plains and has again pushed most of the active weather in the Gulf. Tonight there will once again be a few isolated to scattered showers and storms lingering across the area as we maintain mostly cloudy conditions. Temperatures will fall into the middle 70s with light & variable winds. For Saturday and Sunday it will be mostly cloudy with scattered showers still possible. The extra clouds should keep our temperatures in check with highs only expected to achieve the lower 90s. Labor Day the rain opportunity kicks out, but we'll hold on to decent cloud cover. Temperatures will be back in the hot category with sunshine peeking through the clouds with highs in the upper 90s pushing 100. By Tuesday, tropical moisture returns as we keep an eye again on an area of disturbed weather that is expected to cross the Yucatan this weekend and move into the Bay of Campeche early next week. Some forecast models have this system forming into a storm, while others keep it just a tropical wave. Either scenario we'll look for moisture to make its way back up to South Texas and introduce isolated showers and storms back in the forecast for much of the week. Of course, with development, the forecast may change and we'll have to carefully monitor the track if that occurs. Stay Tuned!
