Hot and dry conditions are expected for our Memorial Day weekend and into next week. The majority of us can expect highs in the 90s to near 105 degrees and abundant sunshine. Lows will be warm overnight in the 70s, closer to 80 degrees along the coast.

Also, if your Memorial Day plans include spending some time at the beach you may want to be aware that there will be an increased risk of dangerous rip currents along our Gulf-facing beaches through the holiday weekend and into early next week. Remember, if you are ever caught in a rip current DO NOT FIGHT IT. Instead, swim parallel to the coast, or wave and yell for help. Fighting against rip currents is oftentimes fruitless and can wear out even a strong swimmer. 

Friday night will be warm and humid with fog developing inland. Low of 71 for Corpus. 

Saturday will be hot and dry with light SSE winds. Expect clear, sunny skies in the afternoon. High of 96 degrees. 

Saturday night will be partly cloudy and humid with fog developing inland. Low of 72 degrees.

Sunday will be hot and dry with clear skies. SSE winds less than 15 MPH. High of 97 degrees!

Sunday night will be mostly clear and calm. Low of 72 degrees.

Expect no changes for Memorial Day Monday. Clear skies, light winds, and a high of 99 degrees.
