CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — A series of upper level disturbances will activate a cold front over the Lone Star State this week, bringing widespread rain and thunderstorms but little cooling to the Coastal Bend.

After only isolated showers Friday through the weekend, more rain is expected beginning next week.

An active wet weather scenario is underway, with a series of upper level disturbances complimenting weak surface boundaries to bring scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms tonight through Thursday.

A weak cold front will allow brief cooling Thursday and Thursday night before dissipating. Isolated showers and thunderstorms will persist in the humid air Friday through Sunday.

Another disturbance will induce scattered thunderstorms Monday and Tuesday.

Look for the clouds and precipitation to keep daytime temperatures a little below normal, with highs from the middle 80s to lower 90s. Lows will remain in the 70s.
