While we enjoyed quiet, albeit windy, weather on this Wednesday here in South Texas… many of our friends across the state were under weather watches as showers and storms fired up and moved NE across western and northern parts of the state. 

Here at home, chances for showers and thunderstorms will increase on Thursday and Friday as a front moves through our area. Do not expect any change in temperature following its arrival, but we can expect to see drier conditions on Sunday. 

Mostly cloudy and breezy conditions are expected overnight. Expect humid conditions and warm lows. Low of 76 for Corpus! Very warm!

Isolated showers and storms will be possible Thursday afternoon, this is especially true for our Northernmost and Westernmost counties. Expect a high risk of rip currents in our area beaches. Thursday will be windy, but not as windy as our Wednesday was. We will see cloudy skies in the morning and sunshine by the afternoon hours. SE 10-25 MPH. High of 89 degrees.

Rain chances and cloud coverage will increase on Friday. Winds will also lessen blowing up to 20 MPH from the SE. Skies will be mostly cloudy to overcast throughout the day. Scattered showers and storms will be possible on Friday. Best rain chances are on Friday night across the Brush Country. 

Isolated to scattered showers and storms may linger into Saturday before drier air moves in Saturday afternoon and and evening.

No rain in the forecast for Sunday and into next week.
