Drier air moves in for Wednesday through Friday with only isolated rain chances the next few days. Another tropical wave will move west through the Gulf and to the coast of Mexico by Saturday. Ahead of it, tropical moisture will increase and south Texas will see widely scattered showers and t-storms Saturday and Sunday. The ridge of high pressure aloft strengthens this weekend which will keep our temperatures above average with higher humidity as the onshore flow increases and winds become breezy this weekend. Heat indices will reach up to 109 Saturday and Sunday. It looks hot and humid through the first half of next week as our summer weather pattern continues.

Tuesday Night: Partly cloudy with lows in the low to mid 70s inland and upper 70s at the beaches as winds become light from the southeast.

Wednesday: A stray shower is possible at the coast in the morning and inland in the afternoon but most areas will stay dry. Skies become mostly sunny with high temperatures in the low to mid 90s inland and upper 80s at the beaches with southeast winds at 8-16 mph. Heat indices will reach up to 104.

Thursday: Except for a stray shower, it looks dry and hot with highs in the low 90s in Corpus Christi to the upper 90s well inland and near 90 at the beaches with southeast winds at 10-18 mph. Heat indices will reach up to 105.

Friday: Partly cloudy with a chance of isolated showers and highs in the mid to upper 90s inland, lower 90s in Corpus Christi and near 90 at the beaches with southeast winds at 12-20 mph.
