Feeling the heat and humidity this weekend, storm chance Saturday

Posted at 6:21 PM, May 17, 2019

An onshore flow will keep our humidity high this weekend as afternoon temperatures climb into the upper 80s to near 90. Also, the onshore flow will cause tide levels to rise around 1 ft. above ground level and water will approach or reach the dunes along area beaches. A Coastal Flood Advisory is in effect until 1 PM Saturday.

A cold front passing to our north will send a line strong to severe storms through the Lone Star State Saturday afternoon and evening but most will stay to our north. There is a chance a few storms could develop in the coastal bend late in the afternoon but most of the day looks dry, very warm, windy and humid.

Friday Night:  Partly to mostly cloudy, warm and muggy with lows in the mid to upper 70s and southeast winds at 13-18 mph.

Saturday: Highs will reach the lower 80s at the beaches and upper 80s to near 90 inland under partly to mostly cloudy skies.It looks windy with southeast winds at 15-25 mph, gusting up to 33 mph. There is a chance of t-storms in the afternoon into early evening with the potential of a strong or severe storm.

Sunday: Morning clouds will break to partly sunny skies and high temperatures will climb into the upper 80s to near 90. The humidity will remain high and heat indices (feel’s like temperatures) will reach the upper 90s to near 100 in the afternoon.
