Few more showers today before hot temperatures and sunshine return in full force

After a round of moderate to strong showers and thundershowers in the Coastal Bend yesterday evening, we have quieted down over much of South Texas.

Mainly locations closer to the coastline received a good amount of some rainfall. Officially out at Corpus Christi International Airport, we picked up just over one and a half inches of some rainfall.

The upper-level disturbance responsible for moving down to the southeast from West Texas is now off into the Gulf of Mexico and that’s where much of the rainfall is on this early Wednesday morning.

As we get the daytime heating going, we’ll look for some isolated showers to kick off along the afternoon seabreeze. Not quite as much as we saw yesterday, but they will be around and capable of dropping around half an inch to one and half inches of rain in a short amount of time. Either way, with some sun breaking through we’ll still manage the middle 90s with east-southeasterly winds around 7-14MPH.

We’ll look for more heat and humidity through the remainder of the week along with increasing winds. Saturday and Father’s Day Sunday highs will be in the upper 90s with inland areas closer to 100.

Stay cool!
