CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — After a long, hot and humid summer, deep tropical moisture and persistent instability will result in nearly a week of scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms.

Best rain chances will be Monday and Tuesday, then again on Thursday and Friday. Clouds and rain will keep temperatures mild.

After a partly cloudy and warm Saturday, another wet weather scenario sets up that persists virtually all of next week.

An upper level trough splits the ridge and lies nearly stationary over West and North Texas beginning Sunday.

Abundant moisture and instability will keep scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms in the region from Sunday afternoon through Friday.

Rainfall totals may exceed two inches for the week. The extensive cloud cover and precipitation will hold maximum temperatures to the upper 80s and lower 90s. Lows will hold in the middle 70s.
