CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Mid-level instability and its associated plume of tropical moisture brought scattered showers to the Coastal Bend yesterday and today, but that rainy area is now moving inland away from the region.

Following several drier days, more showers are expected early next week.

Upper-level high pressure will bridge southward across the state mid- to late-week, shutting down precipitation chances, but this pattern is only temporary.

The high will shift into the Desert Southwest for the weekend, allowing tropical moisture to surge from the western Gulf of Mexico into South Texas.

Showers and thunderstorms will be isolated over the weekend, then become scattered- to- perhaps-numerous Monday and Tuesday.

Temperatures will remain near normal, with high from the upper 80s to near 90 and lows in the middle to upper 70s.
