Rain chances decrease the next couple days as the upper low moves off to the northeast and high pressure aloft dominates our weather for late-week. There is still a chance of a few showers or t-storms Tuesday and Wednesday but coverage will be low. Temperatures will climb late in the week reaching into the mid 90s inland and mid 80s coast as humidity remains fairly high with dew points in the low to mid 70s. We are monitoring a tropical system in the Bay of Campeche. It's possible that the circulation could move north through the Gulf by the weekend into early next week and could bring us more rain, depending on it's track. We'll keep watching and will have updates.

Tonight: Mostly cloudy with patchy fog and a slight shower chance. Lows will drop into the low to mid 70s with a light east breeze.

Tuesday-Wednesday: Partly sunny, very warm and humid with a slight chance of a shower or t-storm. Highs will reach the low 80s beaches to near 90 inland with east winds at 10-18 mph.

Thursday: Partly cloudy with highs in the low 90s inland to the mid 80s beaches and east-southeast winds at 10-18 mph. Heat indices will reach the upper 90s to 100.

Friday: Mostly sunny, hot and humid with highs in the mid 90s inland to the mid 80s beaches and east winds at 8-16 mph.
