The cooler, dry air is on it's way out as another Pacific storm system approaches, increasing moisture which will lead to rain. Clouds will increase Tuesday with breezy southeast winds and slowly rising humidity. A few showers are possible late Tuesday night which will become widespread by Wednesday afternoon with moderate rain late in the day in our northern counties. Rain will end Wednesday night as a cold front moves through and shifts our winds to the northwest early Thursday, ushering in drier and slightly cooler air. Rainfall amounts are expected to be anywhere from only two tenths in our southwestern counties to an inch and a half north of Corpus Christi with locally higher amounts possible along the coast. Thursday through Saturday look mild and dry before an upper level wave moves in Sunday bringing a slight chance of showers.

Monday Night: Clear and cool with lows in the low 40s inland to upper 40s at the coast and light easterly winds.

Tuesday: Increasing clouds, breezy and mild with highs in the mid to upper 60s and east-southeast winds at 10-20 mph.

Wednesday: Increasing showers, becoming widespread by afternoon with highs in the mid to upper 60s.

Thursday: Mostly sunny and mild with highs in the mid to upper 60s and northwest winds at 8-18 mph.

Friday: Mostly sunny with highs in the low to mid 60s and northerly breeze.
