CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — High pressure over the Deep South continues to sweep humid Gulf air into the Coastal Bend this week, keeping temperatures and humidity above normal.

Nevertheless, without significant upper-level disturbances, the week will be devoid of significant precipitation.

The persistent southeasterly flow will be accentuated early in the week by a series of low-pressure systems moving across the Central Plains.

The increasing winds will mean moderate rip currents on Gulf-side beaches.

Temperatures will be above normal, with afternoons in the middle to upper 80s and overnights in the 60s to around 70.
