Drying Out And Heating Up

CORPUS CHRISTI- The dry upper level high that moved northward allowing for some rain in the area nearly every single day over the last week is shifting back to the south. This will result in drier and hotter conditions thru this weekend. Tropical moisture will once again increase with an opportunity for showers beginning late Monday of next week and the high once again backs away from the area.

Tonight will be tranquil but steamy with high clouds and nearly calm winds and a low of 76.

Wednesday expect mostly sunny skies only a stray shower humid and with a high of 96 and a heat index of 105.

Thursday will be sunny with sauna like heat and a high of 97 and a heat index of 107 and generally light winds.

The tropics continue to be quiet.
