CORPUS CHRISTI - A summer-like weather pattern has taken over the Coastal Bend as the rain we had this past week, which was badly needed, has moved far away from us leaving hot temperatures and mostly sunny skies.
Today expect lots of sunshine this afternoon with windy conditions and an afternoon high in the lower 90s near the coast and upper 90s inland. Heat index values for our inland areas will surpass the century mark again, same as yesterday, so outdoor plans should be accompanied with plenty of water. Winds: SE 15-30mph & gusting.
Tonight some low level clouds will once again move in
making for a humid and mild night with lows in the middle 70s.
The weekend looks like much of the same with lots of wind and very warm temperatures still in the 90s. Beach to Bay runners will start Saturday morning near the upper 70s with temperatures rapidly increasing to the upper 80s by noon. Winds will steadily increase as well out of the southeast. Stay hydrated and best of luck!
Have a great weekend!
