The first weekend of August will be typically hot and humid with an increasing afternoon breeze. Saturday looks dry with the exception of a stray sea breeze shower. As an upper level trough of lower pressure to our east drifts toward South Texas, atmospheric moisture will increase through Sunday which could cause a few showers to develop from early Sunday morning into the afternoon. These would be very spotty and many areas will be missed by the rain but a few spots could get a downpour. Overall, most of the weekend looks dry. The beach and fishing forecast looks good for Saturday with 1 foot waves and southeast winds at 7-15 mph. Bays are expected to be slightly choppy with seas off the coast at 1-2 feet.

Friday night: Partly cloudy with lows in the mid to upper 70s inland and near 80 at the beaches with light winds.

Saturday: Partly cloudy to mostly sunny with highs in the mid 90s to near 100 inland and near 90 at the beaches with southeast winds at 7-15 mph. Heat indices will reach 102-108 degrees.

Sunday: Partly cloudy with a slight chance of a shower or t-storm. A few could develop by early morning with spot showers in the afternoon. Highs will reach the mid to upper 90s inland to the upper 80s at the coast.
