CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Skies were fair to partly cloudy late today over the Coastal bend as a strong southeasterly breeze pushed temperatures into the 80s over all but the immediate coastline.
With increased humidity, heat indices pushed into the upper 80s, so it feels like spring has sprung.
In any case, expect no big changes through the coming week, with little to no rainfall expected.
Highs will remain in the 80s (near 90 on Wednesday), while overnight readings will dip only into the middle 60s.
Drier air on Wednesday will allow hotter temperatures and elevated fire danger.
Otherwise, it will stay quite humid for the next seven days, with breezy to windy onshore flow gusting over 30 miles an hour at times.
The only chance of rain will be Thursday and Friday, as a weak cold front arrives Thursday but retreats as a warm front on Friday. Even then, only stray showers can be expected.
