CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — A weak tropical disturbance is bringing showers and thunderstorms to the Coastal Bend this evening through Tuesday, then a lingering disturbance will mean extensive rainfall that will persist through the upcoming weekend.

Meanwhile, we have nearly run out of Atlantic tropical cyclone names.

It will be a wet week upcoming, as deep tropical moisture interacts with a persistent mid-level disturbance over the region.

Extensive cloud cover and scattered to numerous showers will keep highs from the upper 80s to lower 90s. Lows will remain in the middle 70s.

Cumulative rainfall for the week will be in excess of two inches in many Coastal Bend locales.

Meantime, the tropics are extremely active, and we have nearly run out of names.

Hurricane Sally makes landfall along the Mississippi coast Tuesday, while Paulette, Rene, Teddy and Vicky churn in the Atlantic.
