The full "Buck" moon of July rises Tuesday evening in the east at 8:33, just after the sun sets in the west at 8:27. You can see the planet Saturn to the upper right of the moon and bright Jupiter to the upper right of Saturn. We'll have partly cloudy skies tonight with a 10-17 mph breeze from the southeast and lows in the upper 70s to 80 degrees. The hot, humid and dry weather continues the rest of the work week and into the weekend as our weather pattern doesn't change much. Days will reach the upper 90s to near 100 well inland, mid 90s in Corpus Christi and upper 80s at the beaches with 15-22 mph winds. Except for a stray sea breeze shower, it looks dry through Sunday. An upper level wave is showing up on forecast models for next Monday and Tuesday as it moves in from the east, giving us a better chance of showers and t-storms. We'll watch the trends with it and will have updates on our rain chances for early next week.

Tuesday Night: Skies will be partly cloudy with a southeast breeze up to 17 mph and lows in the upper 70s to 80.

Wednesday: Partly cloudy, hot and humid with highs from the upper 90s to near 100 inland to the upper 80s at the beaches and southeast winds at 15-22 mph, gusting up to 30 mph. The humidity will make it feel like 105-110 in the afternoon.
