Hot & Dry Weather Pattern Takes Over

CORPUS CHRISTI - The "Dog Days of Summer" have certainly arrived in South Texas as dry high pressure will keep air sinking in the Coastal Bend and promote lots of sunshine and heat over the next several days with no signs of letting up.

Today will hold lots of sunshine and slightly less wind than yesterday, but still windy, and a high in the middle to upper 90s. Winds: SSE 15-25 & gusting

Tonight will start off mainly clear before low clouds come back in and make for partly to mostly cloudy conditions by morning. Lows will be stuffy and only fall in the upper 70s to lower 80s.

Moderate winds off the Gulf will keep dewpoints up and make for very hot afternoon with heat index values around 105-110 each day. Stay hydrated and take frequent breaks if you will be outdoors for a prolonged period of time. The tropics are still mainly quiet, but a vigorous tropical wave has emerged off the coast of Africa and the National Hurricane Center has a 40% chance of development the next 48 hours and is no concern for us.
