CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — The upper level ridge that has dominated much of the summer over south and southwest parts of the U.S. has shifted into the Four Corners, leaving tropical easterly flow across South Texas.

Usually, that means a good chance of rain, but patterns remain weak and so is our chances of meaningful rain.

A weak mid-level disturbance will allow just enough instability Tuesday and Wednesday to generate isolated showers along the sea breeze, and a second system this weekend will do the same.

Otherwise, expect mostly sunny skies with a gusty southeasterly breeze bringing seasonable temperatures.

That means highs in the lower to middle 90s and lows in the upper 70s.
