CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Skies were partly to mostly cloudy late today as strong daytime heating and a weak sea breeze brought showers and thunderstorms over coastal areas, but rain chance increase dramatically next week.

The combination of abundant Gulf moisture, a weak surface trough and a persistent upper low will mean heavy rainfall potential for much of the coming work week. In fact, with significant rainfall late last month the ground is near saturation, and additional rainfall will induce flash flooding.

We will keep you informed with specifics about what to expect, and when. Meanwhile, the combination of cloud cover and precipitation will limit highs to the middle 80s to lower 90s, with lows in the middle to upper 70s.
