CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — A minor upper-level disturbance moving out of the South Texas area will lead to decreasing rain potential for your weekend, but a stronger system is expected to bring heavy rainfall next week.

The disturbance that brought locally significant rainfall Thursday and Friday will move northeast, out of the area overnight, leaving only Gulf moisture and daytime heating to generate isolated sea-breeze showers.

A stronger disturbance is expected to develop along the Middle Texas Coast early in the week, intensifying and lingering much of the coming week.

That will supply enough lift to produce scattered-to-numerous showers and thunderstorms, with some heavy rainfall -- especially during the second half of the week.

Highs will remain at or slightly below normal, in the upper 80s to lower 90s. Lows will remain in the middle to upper 70s.
