We'll get a slight break from the heat and humidity for a couple days this week as a cold front drops into south Texas. This will bring scattered showers and t-storms Tuesday as winds shift to the north. Rainfall amounts are expected to stay under a half inch Tuesday and rain will be hit and miss. Drier air moves in Tuesday night, giving us a nice day Wednesday with lower humidity as dew points drop into the 60s. Highs for Wednesday and Thursday will stay in the upper 80s to low 90s with mild nights in the low 70s near the coast and upper 60s inland. Moisture will start to return Friday and into the weekend as winds shift to the southeast and dew points climb. This will give us an isolated shower chance from Friday through the weekend with highs in the low to mid 90s and heat indices from 102-108. Also, it will become breezy with increasing southeast winds this weekend.

Monday night: Evening showers ending then partly cloudy with lows in the mid 70s to near 80 and southeast winds shifting to the southwest up to 15 mph.

Tuesday: Partly sunny and hot with highs in the low to mid 90s and heat indices up to 105. There is a chance of showers and t-storms, increasing in the afternoon into early evening with north to northeast winds up to 12 mph.

Tuesday Night: Partly cloudy with lows in the mid to upper 70s.

Wednesday: Mostly sunny with highs in the upper 80s to lower 90s and lower humidity due to northeast winds at 8-15 mph.
