Get ready for another week of hot, humid and mainly dry weather as high pressure aloft remains in control of our weather. Although the ridge of high pressure aloft will back off to the west later this week, temperatures will only come down a couple degrees. A cold front moving through northern Texas will generate some showers late this week but the most the Coastal Bend will see is a stray shower or two Thursday and Friday with little to no rainfall. Above average temperatures will continue through next weekend. All is quiet in the Atlantic Basin and no tropical cyclone formation is expected in the next 5 days.

Monday night: Partly cloudy with lows in the upper 70s inland to lower 80s at the beaches and southeast winds at 8-18 mph.

Tuesday: Mostly sunny with dangerous heat and humidity as high temperatures reach near 90 at the beaches to 105 well inland and heat indices reach 108-116 degrees. Southeast winds will increase to near 20 mph late in the afternoon.

Wednesday: Mostly sunny, hot and humid with high temperatures near 90 at the beaches to 105 well inland and heat indices of 107-115 degrees. Southeast winds will increase to near 18 mph late in the afternoon.

Thursday: Partly cloudy with a stray shower chance and highs near 90 at the beaches to 103 well inland and heat indices of 105-112 degrees.
