The work week got off to a steamy start with above average temperatures but as the high pressure area aloft shifts to the west, we'll see a slight decrease in temperatures later this week and near normal temperatures. A tropical wave of low pressure is forecast to move north through the western Gulf increasing moisture from Thursday through the weekend. At this time it looks like the bulk of the moisture will stay over the Gulf and farther up the coast but for the Coastal Bend, hit and miss showers and t-storms are possible each day. Rainfall amounts are forecast to be low, under a half inch total through Sunday in most areas. Afternoon high temperatures will come down to the upper 90s well inland to the low to mid 90s in Corpus Christi and upper 80s at the beaches from Thursday through the weekend with nights in the upper 70s.
Monday Night: Partly cloudy with lows in the upper 70s to lower 80s and southeast winds at 10-18 mph.
Tuesday: Mostly sunny, hot and humid with highs reaching 100-104 inland, upper 90s in Corpus Christi to near 90 at the beaches. Heat indices will reach up to 114 inland to 105 at the beaches with southeast winds at 12-20 mph.
Wednesday: Mostly sunny with highs up to 102 inland, upper 90s in Corpus Christi and near 90 at the beaches with southeast winds increasing up to 18 mph in the afternoon.
Thursday: Partly cloudy with a slight chance of a shower or t-storm. Highs will reach near 100 inland, mid 90s in Corpus Christi and upper 80s at the beaches with heat indices up to 108 inland to 102 at the beaches with southeast winds at 10-18 mph.
