July will end with no surprises, just our usual heat and humidity and increasing afternoon breeze as the onshore flow continues. Except for a stray sea breeze shower, it looks dry this week as high pressure aloft to our west continues to dominate our weather. It looks very humid all week as dew points stay in the mid 70s, dropping only slightly by the weekend. This will cause heat indices to climb to 102-109 each day. We are heading into the peak of the tropical weather season during August and September but at this time, it is quiet. The National Hurricane Center is monitoring a tropical wave over the eastern Caribbean but only gives it a 10% chance of formation in the next 5 days.

Monday Night: Partly cloudy with lows in the mid 70s inland to low 80s at the coast with south-southeast winds at 8-13 mph.

Tuesday: Partly to mostly sunny with a stray sea breeze shower possible inland during the afternoon. Highs will reach near 100 well inland to the mid 90s around Corpus Christi and upper 80s to near 90 at beaches. Southeast winds will increase to 15-20 mph in the afternoon. Heat indices will climb to 102-109.

Wednesday: Partly to mostly sunny with highs in the upper 80s at the beaches to upper 90s well inland and southeast winds at 10-16 mph.
