We'll stay dry through Wednesday with plenty of sunshine which will boost temperatures a few more degrees. A weak frontal boundary will move into south Texas Thursday night bringing our next chance of showers and t-storms late in the day Thursday through early Friday with an isolated severe storm threat. As an upper level trough hangs over us this weekend, we'll have isolated storm chances but storm coverage looks low. The ridge of high pressure aloft will strengthen early next week, giving us a drier weather pattern to start the week with hot temperatures.

Tonight: Partly cloudy with lows in the upper 60s to mid 70s and light winds.

Wednesday: Mostly sunny with highs in the low to mid 90s inland to the low 80s at the beaches and southeast winds increasing to 15-20 mph in the afternoon.

Thursday: Partly cloudy with a chance of thunderstorms late in the day and overnight. Highs will reach the lower 90s inland to the low 80s beaches with southeast winds at 10-20 mph.

Friday: Chance of showers and t-storms, mainly early in the day then partly sunny with highs in the upper 80s to 90 inland and low 80s beaches.
