CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Intense, persistent upper-level high pressure is bringing dangerous heat and humidity to the Coastal Bend again this afternoon, and that pattern will continue at least into the middle of next week.

Heat advisories are likely to be needed for heat indices above 110 degrees each afternoon.

Rain chances will remain nil through the second half of next work week.

The massive upper-level high extends from the Desert Southwest through the Southern Plains, and has prompted heat advisories throughout the region.

The system will begin to shift into the Ozarks by late next week, and in doing so will allow deep layered tropical moisture to infiltrate the Middle Texas coast.

That will mean some relief from daytime heat, and possibly some rain chances by next weekend.

In the meantime, expect highs in the middle to upper 90s, with lows from the upper 70s to around 80.
