Mild thunderstorms and rain moved through areas of Victoria and Jackson counties on Sunday and Monday, but the National Weather Service in Corpus Christi isn't predicting more rain this week.

"Chances for rain are low tomorrow, it's not favorable for thunderstorm development. It looks like it will remain dry for the next several days," Meteorologist Roger Gass said.

A rain count for Monday was unavailable because the rain storm moved away from the airport where the measurement count is taken, Gass said. Areas of Jackson County and Victoria were some of the few to get rainfall.

Sunday and Monday also broke record high temperatures. Sunday's high temperature of 100, broke the record of 98 degrees set in 1989. Monday's temperature of 101 degrees broke the 1916 record of 100 degrees.

"Two days in a row we reached over 100, which is pretty rare for this time of year," Gass said.
