Hot Today; T.S. Andrea No Threat to S. Texas

CORPUS CHRISTI - Our ridge of high pressure that has dominated our forecast the past several days will slowly be moved to the west-southwest today and allow subtle changes to the forecast.

Today expect another round of hot temperatures with highs in the middle to upper 90s and heat index values approaching or surpassing the century mark. Winds will be out of the ENE/ESE around 5-15mph.

This evening and tonight, stray to isolated showers will be moving in from the north along a weak frontal boundary that will stall over the area. No severe weather is expected at this time with rainfall amounts averaging a tenth or so for those who receive the rain.

Tropical Storm Andrea is no direct threat to us here in South Texas, with the exception of increasing the danger for rip currents along the gulf waters. Highs will remain in the 90s through the weekend under partly cloudy to mostly sunny skies.
