This is normally our hottest time of the year with the 30 year average high in Corpus Christi at 95. However, temperatures are expected to heat above the averages as high pressure aloft which is currently to our west will drift over Texas and remain in place late this week and into next week. This will also make it difficult for rain to form as the air under the ridge aloft will sink and warm. The humidity will remain high and days will be oppressive with heat indices reaching 105 near the coast and up to 114 degrees inland. High temperatures will reach near 90 at the beaches to the upper 90s in Corpus Christi to 100-105 inland each day with abundant sunshine. Rain is unlikely, with the exception of a stray shower. In the tropics all is quiet and tropical cyclone activity is not expected in the next 5 days.

Monday night: Lows will drop into the mid to upper 70s inland and near 80 at the beaches with 5-13 mph wind and mostly clear skies.

Tuesday: Temperatures will reach 100 to 103 inland and into the upper 90s in Corpus Christi to near 90 at the beaches with southeast winds at 8-18 mph. Heat indices will climb to 105-112 degrees.

Wednesday: Highs will reach 101-105 inland to the upper 90s in Corpus Christi and near 90 at the beaches with southeast winds at 12-20 mph, gusting up to 32 mph. Heat indices will reach 105-113 degrees.
