The last band of moisture rotating around remnants of Fernand will lift north and bring the Coastal Bend a few more showers and t-storms through Thursday. The best chance of rain will be from Corpus Christi southward as a band of showers and isolated storms moves in late Wednesday night with showers decreasing and moving inland into Thursday afternoon. Also, through Wednesday night there is still a high rip current risk at the beaches and minor beach flooding is possible. Drier air moves in from late Thursday through the weekend and temperatures will be above average through Sunday under mostly sunny skies. Heat indices will reach 103-109 each day. Early next week, the high pressure area aloft weakens and an upper level disturbance moving into South Texas will bring a slight chance of rain to the Coastal Bend Monday through Wednesday with temperatures coming down a couple degrees.

Wednesday night: A few showers and t-storms move back in after midnight with lows in the upper 70s to low 80s and east winds at 8-16 mph.

Thursday: Scattered showers and t-storms in the morning will decrease through the afternoon and move inland. Highs will reach near 100 in northwestern inland areas and mid to upper 90s farther east and south with upper 80s at the beaches. Heat indices will reach up to 107 in the afternoon with easterly winds at 10-18 mph.

Friday: Partly cloudy and hot with highs from 100-103 inland, upper 90s in Corpus Christi and near 90 at the beaches. A stray shower is possible but most areas will stay dry.
