A dry, hot weather pattern is shaping up as we head into the weekend as high pressure aloft builds over south Texas. Temperatures will slowly climb through Saturday, reaching the mid 90s inland to the mid 80s at the beaches. As Tropical Storm Cristobal moves north through the Gulf, a few showers will be possible right along the coast late Sunday into Monday, mainly north of Corpus Christi but most will stay out over the water. Hot air on the backside of the circulation will bring temperatures up Sunday through Tuesday, reaching 100-105 inland and upper 80s at the coast with heat indices as high as 115 Monday and Tuesday as surface winds shift to the south and humidity climbs.
Tonight: Partly cloudy with areas of fog inland and lows in the low 70s inland to upper 70s coast and light winds.
Thursday: Partly cloudy, very warm and humid with highs in the low 90s inland to the mid 80s beaches and southeast winds at 8-16 mph.
Friday-Saturday: Partly cloudy, hot and humid with highs in the mid 90s inland to the mid 80s beaches and light east winds Friday shifting to the northeast Saturday.
Sunday: Mostly sunny, hot and humid with highs near 100 inland to the upper 80s beaches and light northeast to east winds. Heat indices will reach 100-108.
