CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Some slightly cooler and drier air will move into the Coastal Bend today and provide a relatively nice day over the area with some sunshine returning this afternoon as well.
This will be short-lived as moisture will begin to pool back into the area as southeasterly winds take over heading into the weekend.
This means that more clouds and another round of some rainfall comes back into the forecast for much of Saturday and lingering into Sunday.
A few weak upper-level disturbances will interact with moisture streaming off the Gulf and provide the best chances of rain Saturday before everything starts to move more northward late Sunday and into next week. Still, some of the showers and storms could be on the strong side and have gusty winds, heavy downpours and small hail associated with them. Some locations could pick up another couple of inches of rain this weekend.
Today: Cool start, afternoon sunshine with good mix of clouds, below normal highs…High: 81…Wind: ENE 10-15 mph.
Tonight: More clouds, still cool and pleasant…Low: 67…Wind: ENE 5-10 mph.
