Rain is likely Wednesday as an area of low pressure moves across north Texas, picking up Pacific moisture from the southwest while low level moisture increases at the surface with the onshore flow. Showers early in the morning will increase and become widespread from mid-morning through early afternoon before moving east and over the Gulf by evening. Rainfall will be moderate at time in the middle of the day with highest rainfall amounts along the coast and north of Corpus Christi while areas farther west and southwest will have lower amounts of rain. Totals of .25" to 1.25" are expected with Corpus Christi expected to get just under an inch before drier air moves in Wednesday night. A weak cold front will move through early Thursday with sunshine through Friday and highs in the 60s. An upper level wave will move in from the southwest Saturday and showers are possible by afternoon into Saturday night as this wave moves through, ending early Sunday. Temperatures will warm up Sunday through next Tuesday before another chance of rain returns.

Tuesday Night: Cloudy and not as cool with lows in the mid 50s to lower 60s and a steady southeast wind of 10-18 mph. Isolated showers are possible late.

Wednesday: Increasing rain in the morning with rain likely through early afternoon and ending by early evening. Temperatures will reach the mid to upper 60s with south to southeast winds up to 18 mph.

Thursday: Mostly sunny with highs in the upper 60s to mid 70s and west-northwest winds at 10-20 mph.
