The 30 year average high temperature in Corpus Christi goes up to 95 from August 2 through the 20th, making it the hottest stretch of days before we start cooling as we head toward fall. The upper level ridge of high pressure which controls our weather this time of year looks like it will stay anchored just to our west, providing us with plenty of heat and humidity and little to no rainfall through early next week. A stray shower or t-storm is a possibility but there are no signs of widespread rain. Temperatures will run slightly above average most days, reaching the mid to upper 90s inland and upper 80s at the beaches with southeast winds at 8-16 mph each day. In the tropics, there is a tropical disturbance in the northern Caribbean and another in the Atlantic but at this time, both have a very low chance of development late this week.

Tuesday Night: Partly cloudy with lows in the mid to upper 70s inland and near 80 at the beaches with southeast winds at 8-12 mph.

Wednesday: Partly cloudy to mostly sunny, hot and humid with highs in the mid to upper 90s inland to upper 80s at the beaches and southeast winds at 8-15 mph. An isolated shower is possible in the afternoon inland.

Thursday: Continued hot and humid with a stray shower chance and highs in the mid to upper 90s inland and upper 80s beaches.
