Heat continues this week with spot shower chances

Posted at 6:03 PM, Oct 01, 2019

October is here but it's still feeling like summer as high pressure aloft continues to be dominant. Temperatures will stay above average through Sunday, reaching the upper 80s to mid 90s. Winds will become lighter the next few days, shifting to the east through Friday and east-northeast Saturday which will bring our humidity down a bit and allow nights to cool back into the lower 70s inland and upper 70s at the coast. Spot showers are possible Wednesday with a slightly better chance Thursday as moisture increases slightly. The weekend looks hot and mainly dry. It still looks like the first cold front of the season will move through the Coastal Bend early Monday. There is a chance of showers with the front but drier, slightly cooler air will move in behind it by Monday evening and Tuesday. Highs will reach the mid to upper 80s early next week with nights in the upper 60s to lower 70s.

Tuesday Night: Partly cloudy with a spot shower chance and lows in the mid to upper 70s inland to near 80 at the beaches.

Wednesday: Partly cloudy with a spot shower or storm chance and highs in the mid to upper 90s inland to the lower 90s in Corpus Christi and upper 80s beaches. East-southeast winds will reach 18 mph with heat indices up to 104.

Thursday: Widely scattered showers with highs in the low to mid 90s inland and upper 80s at the beaches. East winds will reach up to 18 mph.
