High pressure is going to build in for the week ahead which will leave us with mostly quiet weather. That’s all aside from one or two stray showers.

Tuesday’s forecast

Skies will be partly cloudy and a stray shower or two are likely to pop up as the sea breeze moves inland during the afternoon. Highs will be near 90 degrees. A Coastal Flood Advisory will be in effect for the Gulf facing beaches on the islands until 7 a.m. for the potential of tides being elevated by up to two feet.

The rest of the week

The partly cloudy skies and mostly quiet weather conditions look to stick around as high pressure maintains its influence over the region. Highs will be near 90 degrees, but the winds will start to become a little more elevated by the end of the week.

September in review

September 2018 ended up being the 8th wettest September in Corpus Christi. With over 13 inches of rain, Corpus Christi received 42 percent of the rain it normally receives in an entire year. The wet month allowed area lakes to rise significantly, including Lake Corpus Christi that is now at 100 percent capacity.
