Dry and hot weekend, moisture returns Monday

Posted at 5:38 PM, Sep 05, 2019

Clouds will thin out to partly cloudy skies Thursday night and with light winds and moist ground, areas of fog are expected by Friday morning. Atmospheric moisture will decrease the next couple days and we'll see more sunshine and hot, humid days through the weekend and above average temperatures. The dome of high pressure aloft will shift to the west early next week as an easterly wave of low pressure moves into South Texas and moisture increases. This will increase our chance of showers & t-storms from Monday through Wednesday and will also bring temperatures back down to near normal.

Thursday Night: Partly cloudy with areas of fog and lows in the mid to upper 70s inland and near 80 at the beaches. Winds will become nearly calm by morning.

Friday: Areas of morning fog with skies becoming mostly sunny. Highs will reach the upper 90s to 100 inland, mid 90s in Corpus Christi and upper 80s at the beaches. Heat indices will reach up to 108 with southeast winds at 8-16 mph.

Weekend: Mostly sunny, hot and humid with highs at 100-103 inland, upper 90s in Corpus Christi and near 90 at the beaches with southeast winds at 12-20 mph. Heat indices will reach up to 109.
