Warm with spot showers Sunday

Clouds and rain chances increase heading into the back half of the Memorial Day weekend. Skies clear and temps jump back into the low 90s late next week.

CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — SUNDAY: We saw some rain showers clip western Duval County this morning. This is from the leftovers of a line of thunderstorms that worked through the Big Bend and Del Rio last night. The storms have turned southward and are fizzling out, so they will not impact Corpus Christi.

Today, we're starting off on the cloudy side again. Unlike yesterday, the clouds will hang around longer thanks to higher levels of moisture in the atmosphere. We'll finally see partly cloudy skies by the end of the day.

Rain Chances

Computer models want to take storms forming in Mexico this afternoon and bring them across as a line of thunderstorms through the Coastal Bend tonight. This makes the forecast tricky: think back to Mother's Day weekend. We had a line of thunderstorms move through the Coastal Bend, and that took a lot of "oomph" (read: energy and moisture) out of the atmosphere. As a result, the forecast rain chances for during the day didn't happen.

That's a possibility for this Monday's (Memorial Day) rain chances. As it stands, the forecast still holds on to rain chances Monday after lunchtime, with another line of storms Monday night.

Monday Morning Futurecast

MEMORIAL DAY: Here's a look at Monday afternoon's Futurecast. The radar doesn't get much activity on it until after lunchtime, so if you have any plans earlier in the day for Memorial Day, they should be okay for now.

Clouds and rain chances keep highs to the mid-80s. It won't be raining all day long - activity will be more scattered like you see below. More rain chances Tuesday will help boost rainfall totals around the Coastal Bend to a quarter to half inch of rain for most. Isolated higher totals over an inch are possible, especially towards the coast.

LOOKING AHEAD: The reason we'll see rain chances is an upper-level low tracking across Texas. That'll combine with another piece of energy and increased moisture on Monday to provide us with those good rain chances.

Upper-Level Low Over Texas

As the low exits to our east, we'll keep an eye on it for any tropical development. The NHC isn't flagging this area as of Saturday morning, but it is possible this system tries to get its act together to our east. It's just something to watch, not worry about - looks like a good shot at rain for wherever it tracks next.
