The weekend started hot and humid in the Coastal Bend and that doesn’t look to change anytime soon.
The daytime high Saturday was around 90 degrees, but the heat index hit near 105 in the afternoon. Winds picked up at around 20-25 mph from the south. Similar conditions are on the way for Sunday with a little less wind.
That haze in the air, however, will stick around as well while Saharan dust blows into the area. As we’ve reported, those with allergies or respiratory problems should use extra caution when going outside.
Hot and humid conditions stick around for the first half of the workweek with daytime highs in the lower 90s. Overnight lows will cool things down to the upper 70s.
Around the Fourth of July, however, more moisture is expected in the area, with scattered showers Wednesday through Friday. Doesn’t look like a full-on washout, but be prepared for a few showers.
