We'll heat up for the end of the week as winds shift to the southeast bringing the humidity up through Friday with high temperatures climbing into the mid 90s inland. A line of spotty thunderstorms will move into south Texas as a cold front moves in Friday evening. Northerly winds will send cooler air in Friday night through Saturday with showers and isolated storms possible as an upper level wave passes through south Texas. Rainfall amounts will be highest south with lower amounts and fewer showers north. Overall rainfall amounts are forecast to come in close to a quarter inch in our northern counties to close to a half in around Corpus Christi and up to an inch near Baffin Bay southward. Showers will taper off from north to south Saturday as temperatures stay in the 70s. Mother's Day looks warmer with partly cloudy skies with highs in the upper 70s to mid 80s and a northeast breeze, making for a nice day.
