The warm weather continues into Friday with southerly winds and higher humidity which will keep us mild Thursday night with lows in the 60s as clouds increase.

As an upper level wave moves through, a spot shower is possible Friday morning with the best chance in coastal areas north of Corpus Christi. Only a few hundredths to a tenth inch of rain is expected before skies clear Friday afternoon and temperatures reach near 80 degrees with a south breeze up to 15 mph.

Lows will drop into the 50s Friday night with a mostly sunny and mild day Saturday, reaching into the mid 70s with a northerly breeze up to 15 mph.

Another upper level wave will move through Sunday that will bring the clouds back in and give us a chance of isolated light showers in the afternoon, followed by much cooler air. Breezy northerly winds will drop temperatures to near 40 Sunday night and keep Monday chilly, only reaching near 60 for highs.

We need rain but in the next two weeks, little to no rainfall is expected. A large portion of the Coastal Bend is in a moderate drought with a severe drought in Corpus Christi. Our water supply keeps dropping and the combined percent capacity of Lake Corpus Christi and Choke Canyon Reservoir is at 40.5%. When this number drops below 40%, stage 1 water restrictions will be enforced which could be in a week or two.
