CORPUS CHRISTI - It definitely felt like a summer day in South Texas with lots of sunshine across the area with highs in the upper 90s and low 100s. High pressure remains firmly in place this afternoon, but will slowly meander to the west and allow a weak upper-level disturbance to move near the Texas coast. In turn, this will provide the area with a few stray to isolated showers on Wednesday and Thursday. Despite this, temperatures will remain hot with highs in the 90s and 100s with heat indices around 103-113 degrees. Tonight will be mostly clear with a few high clouds and temperatures only dipping into the upper 70s to lower 80s. Winds: SSE 5-10 Wednesday, look for mostly sunny to partly cloudy skies with a few stray showers in the afternoon. The heat will continue to dominate with highs in the middle to upper 90s near the coast and around 100-104 inland. Stay hydrated if working outdoors. Winds: SE 10-20mph. The upper-level disturbance will break down by Friday and our small rain chances will go away as the high builds back into South Texas over the weekend and our hot and dry pattern returns. Tropical Depression #2 is still out in the central Atlantic and is about 800 miles east of the Lesser Antilles. It has not strengthened much over the last 24 hours and will continue to have a hard time strengthening as it moves into an unfavorable environment with lots of wind shear. It will begin to break apart heading into the weekend and is no threat to the Texas coast.
