High temperatures will climb into the 90s in Corpus Christi and inland areas with heat indices of 100-110 from Saturday through Monday.

If it stays well to our east, we'll be on the hot, dry side of the circulation, which is what is expected at this time. We'll track it through the week and will have updates.
