CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Abundant atmospheric moisture will combine with waves of instability to create a favorable environment for showers and thunderstorms through the end of the work week.

Local rainfall totals may approach four inches.

The best chance of showers and thunderstorms will begin Wednesday night, and persist through Friday, as an upper-level low develops over South Texas.

That system will drift north by the weekend, allowing drying over our region.

Only isolated showers are expected Saturday and Sunday.

Daytime temperatures will be below normal Wednesday through Friday due to clouds and precipitation.

Expect highs in the 80s, warming to the lower 90s by early next week.

Lows will remain in the upper 70s to around 80.
