We'll have good weather to get outdoors this weekend with seasonably hot days, reaching the lower 90s in Corpus Christi and mid to upper 90s inland. Winds will come in from the northeast to east up to 15 mph and heat indices will reach up to 102. Spotty showers and t-storms are possible Sunday but much of the day will be dry and hot with partly cloudy skies. A wave of low pressure moving west across the Gulf will send tropical moisture in to the Coastal Bend starting Sunday through early next week. This will give us a better chance of showers and t-storms which will be scattered Monday and Tuesday. As the air dries out, rain chances will become more isolated for the second half of the week.

Saturday: Partly cloudy in the morning with a stray coastal shower chance then mostly sunny and hot with highs in the low to mid 90s inland to the upper 80s at the beaches. Light northeast winds will shift to the east and increase to 15 mph in the afternoon. Heat indices will reach 98-102.

Sunday: Partly cloudy with a slight chance of a shower or t-storm and highs in the low to mid 90s inland and upper 80s at the beaches with east-northeast winds up to 15 mph.

Monday: Partly cloudy with scattered showers and t-storms with highs near 90 in Corpus Christi, low 90s inland and mid 80s at the beaches.
