Low humidity again Thursday, shower chance returns Friday

Posted at 6:02 PM, Jul 24, 2019

Unusually low humidity for late July and clear skies will give us a mild night with a possible record low in Corpus Christi. The record low for Thursday morning is 70 in 1976 which we could break as we dip into the upper 60s. Northeast winds will keep our humidity low again Thursday but the dry air and abundant sunshine will boost afternoon temperatures into the low to mid 90s. An upper level wave moving in from the northeast Friday could cause a few showers to develop in the morning at the coast and inland by afternoon as humidity increases. Winds will shift to the southeast by the weekend and we'll get back to our normal hot, humid and breezy weather with a slight shower chance each day.

Wednesday Night: Mostly clear and mild with lows in the mid 60s well inland, upper 60s near Corpus Christi and mid 70s beaches with light northerly winds.

Thursday: Mostly sunny and hot with low humidity and winds from the northeast up to 15 mph. Highs will reach the upper 80s at the beaches to the low to mid 90s inland.

Thursday Night: Partly cloudy with a slight shower chance at the coast by morning with lows in the lower 70s inland to upper 70s at the beaches.

Friday: Slight shower or storm chance with highs in the low to mid 90s inland and upper 80s at the beaches and east winds up to 18 mph.
