Moisture Associated with Tropical Storm Ingrid Expected to Filter into South Texas on Sunday

Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

SATURDAY: DRIER AIR REMAINS IN PLACE AND THAT WILL AID IN LIMITING RAIN FOR THE AREA. ISOLATED SHOWERS WILL MOVE IN FROM THE GULF OF MEXICO DURING THE MORNING IN COASTAL LOCATIONS. THOSE WILL REMAIN ISOLATED IN NATURE AND PUSH INLAND ALONG THE SEA BREEZE DURING THE AFTERNOON. MIX OF CLOUDS AND SUNSHINE WITH A HIGH OF 94 DEGREES. WINDS SOUTHEAST AT 15 TO 20 MPH.

SATURDAY NIGHT: FAIR SKIES, WINDS BETWEEN 7 AND 14 MPH, AND LOWS IN THE UPPER 70'S.

SUNDAY: MOISTURE ASSOCIATED WITH TROPICAL STORM INGRID BEGINS TO FILTER INTO SOUTH TEXAS. OPPORTUNITY FOR RAIN WILL GO UP AS A RESULT. LOOK FOR SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS TO DEVELOP ON SUNDAY. THEY WILL BE WIDELY SCATTERED...I DON'T THINK EVERYONE WILL GET RAIN ON SUNDAY. HIGH TEMPERATURE OF 89 DEGREES WITH WINDS AT 12-17 MPH.

TROPICS: TROPICAL STORM INGRID HAS STARTED TO MOVE NORTH AND IS PRODUCING WINDS SUSTAINED AT 60 MPH. IT'LL CONTINUE TO MOVE NORTHWARD TODAY AND TOMORROW. IT WILL EVENTUALLY MAKE A SHARP TURN TO THE WEST AND HEAD TOWARD TAMPICO, MEXICO ON MONDAY MORNING...THAT'S WHEN IT'LL MAKE LANDFALL. THERE IS POTENTIAL FOR INGRID TO STRENGTHEN TO A CATEGORY ONE HURRICANE BEFORE IT MAKES LANDFALL.

FOR SOUTH TEXAS, RAIN AMOUNTS WILL BE DEPENDENT ON HOW FAR NORTH OF TAMPICO INGRID CAN ADVANCE. FOR NOW, TRACK HAS IT MOVING RIGHT INTO TAMPICO. WITH THAT TRACK, I THINK CORPUS CHRISTI PICKS UP AROUND 2 TO 4 INCHES OF RAIN FROM SUNDAY TO WEDNESDAY. GREATER AMOUNTS SOUTH OF CORPUS CHRISTI, LOWER AMOUNTS TO THE NORTH. SOME COASTAL LOCATIONS COULD GET AS MUCH AS HALF A FOOT OF RAIN.

LARGER WAVES WILL ALSO LEAD TO COASTAL FLOODING AND A HIGH RISK FOR RIP CURRENTS THROUGH THE WEEKEND.
