CORPUS CHRISTI - We saw some nice rainfall over parts of the weekend as Corpus Christi International reported just over an inch of rain on Saturday and pushed our monthly total to over 2 inches. We dried out somewhat on Sunday, but afternoon highs on pushed the lower 80s. The cool down was most welcome as we heated back into the upper 80s to lower 90s this afternoon under mostly cloudy skies. There is another tropical wave that is in the western Gulf of Mexico and approaching the South Texas coast this evening and into tomorrow. This will again increase cloud cover over the area and bring scattered to isolated showers back in the forecast. Tonight look for increasing clouds and scattered showers and thunderstorms moving in from the Gulf. Temperatures will dip back into the middle to lower 70s. Winds: ENE 7-14mph Tuesday will be overcast to mostly cloudy with scattered showers and thunderstorms in the area as the tropical wave moves ashore over the region. Average rainfall amounts will be around half an inch to one and a half inches. Under the heavier storms, 2-4 inches will be possible with localized flooding. Highs will make the mid to upper 80s. Winds: E 10-20mph Though decreasing in coverage, isolated showers will remain in the forecast until Thursday as copious amounts of moisture continue streaming overhead. It will be damp and muggy in the afternoon with warm afternoon highs in the upper 80s to lower 90s. We'll dry out for the weekend as another weak front looks to stall out over the area early next week and bring another shot at some rainfall.
