Typical late-May weather is expected through the weekend with very warm, humid days. An upper level wave will move into south Texas, sending a weak cold front into the area Thursday night. Out ahead of it, isolated t-storms will be possible late in the day Thursday and into the evening with a marginal risk of a severe storm. A complex of storms forming in west Texas Thursday night will move south and could clip our area by early Friday. There is also a chance of a shower or storm Friday afternoon. Overall coverage of the rain looks low and many areas will be missed. This weekend looks mainly dry with an isolated storm chance Saturday.

Tonight: Isolated shower chance with partly cloudy skies and lows in the low to mid 70s.

Thursday: Partly sunny, very warm and humid with highs in the low 90s inland to the low 80s beaches. Afternoon heat indices will reach 100-105 inland as southeast winds increase to 12-18 mph. There is a slight t-storm chance late in the afternoon and evening.

Friday: Chance of showers and t-storms mainly early with highs near 90 inland to the low 80s beaches and northeast to east breeze at 8-15 mph.
