You'll want to keep the umbrella handy as we head into the weekend. Tropical moisture increases starting Friday through Saturday giving us a better chance of showers and t-storms. Rain will be spotty Friday but will become more likely Saturday with heavy rain possible. As the air starts to dry out Sunday, the rain chance decreases. Temperatures will reach the low to mid 90s inland through the weekend with upper 80s at the beaches. Southeast winds will increase up to 25 mph, giving us breezy afternoons which will cause our heat indices to climb as high as 108. Early next week looks hot with only isolated rain chances.

Thursday Night: Partly cloudy with lows in the low to mid 70s inland and upper 70s at the coast with light southeast winds. There is a chance of coastal showers toward morning.

Friday: Partly cloudy with a few showers possible at the coast early and spotty showers or isolated storms inland in the afternoon. Highs will reach the mid to upper 90s inland to the lower 90s in Corpus Christi and upper 80s at the beaches with southeast winds at 10-18 mph. Heat indices will climb up to 104.

Saturday: Partly cloudy and breezy with scattered showers and t-storms, some with heavy rain. Highs will reach the low to mid 90s inland, near 90 in Corpus Christi and mid to upper 80s at the beaches. Southeast winds will reach up to 22 mph in the afternoon with heat indices up to 106.

Sunday: Partly cloudy with widely scattered showers and isolated storms and continued hot and humid. Southeast winds will reach up to 25 mph.
