The heat and humidity will rise Tuesday, ahead of a weak cold front which will move in Wednesday. We'll have a windy and very warm day Tuesday with high temperatures reaching the mid 90s inland to low 80s at the coast. A line of showers and t-storms will move south with a cold front Wednesday morning and will quickly move through the Coastal Bend with the best chance along the coast and lower inland. Behind the front, winds will shift to the northeast, ushering in less humid and slightly cooler air Wednesday night into Thursday. The break from the heat and humidity won't last long though. The ridge of high pressure aloft will build in for the weekend, bringing summer-like weather back through early next week.

Tonight: Mostly cloudy, breezy and warm with lows in the low to mid 70s and southeast winds at 12-20 mph.

Tuesday: Partly sunny, humid, windy and very warm with highs in the lower 80s at the coast to the mid 90s inland and southeast winds at 15-25 mph, gusting up to 35 mph.

Wednesday: Chance of showers and t-storms early in the day then becoming partly cloudy with winds shifting to the northeast up to 25 mph. High temperatures will reach near 80 at the beaches to the low 90s inland.

Wednesday Night: Mostly clear and cooler with lows in the low to mid 60s and northeast winds at 8-15 mph.

Thursday: Mostly sunny with less humidity and highs in the upper 70s beaches to near 90 inland and northeast winds shifting to the east-southeast up to 18 mph.
