Northeast winds are ushering in drier air which will lead to a couple cooler nights and nice days to end the week. Lows will dip into the 50s Wednesday night as winds die down and skies clear. Although it will still be very warm, the humidity will be low which will make it feel nicer. Winds will shift to the southeat Friday and the humidity will start rising. A summer-like weather pattern is shaping up for the weekend and early next week as high pressure aloft builds over south Texas. This will bring temperatures up into the 90s and with higher humidity, afternoon heat indices will reach 100-107 by Monday. The next cold front arrives next Wednesday but only brings temperatures down slightly with little to no rainfall.

Tonight: Clear and cooler with lows in the mid to upper 50s inland and lower 60s at the coast with northeast winds at 5-10 mph.

Thursday: Sunny and warm with highs in the upper 70s to 80 at the beaches and near 90 inland with northeast to east winds at 8-15 mph.

Thursday Night: Clear and mild with lows in the lower to upper 60s.

Friday: Mostly sunny, warm and a bit more humid with highs near 80 at the beaches to the low 90s inland and southeast winds at 10-20 mph.

Saturday: Partly cloudy, windy, and humid with highs in the low 80s at the beaches to the mid 90s inland and southeast winds at 15-25 mph, gusting up to 35 mph.

Sunday: Partly cloudy, windy, hot and humid with highs in the low 80s beaches to the upper 90s inland and southeast winds at 15-25 mph.
