CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Upper level high pressure just won't go away, which means the heat and humidity is sticking around the Coastal Bend for the next several days.

Afternoon heat indices will surge to between 105 and 112 degrees into Sunday.

A weak cold front will finally brings rain chances Monday night through Wednesday.

Very little rain has fallen in the area over the past two weeks, and none is expected until the upper-level ridge moves into the Great Basin early next week.

That will allow a weak cold front to move southward through the state and into South Texas Monday night, pushing scattered showers and thunderstorms along its leading edge.

Expect the front to stall south of the Coastal Bend on Wednesday, leaving isolated showers for our region.

Highs will remain in the middle to upper 90s ahead of the front, dropping into the lower 90s on Wednesday.

Lows will be in the upper 70s will dip into the middle 70s Tuesday and Wednesday.
