Less Wind And Heat & A Wetter Weekend

CORPUS CHRISTI- We are finally going to see at least a small change in our windy scorching hot and bone dry conditions courtesy of the upper level high weakening overhead. The effects of the dry high breaking down were already showing up in the form of a bluer sky today and noticeably less wind. The tropics continue to be inactive as Saturday is the anniversary of Hurricane Allen that made landfall south of here near Port Mansfield in 1980.

Today and Sunday expect variable sunshine in and around widely scattered tropical showers (coastal in the morning moving inland in the afternoon) still humid but not as hot (Friday was 98 for the high) with a high Saturday of 94 and 93 Sunday. A few of the rainfall amounts will be locally heavy.

Saturday night will be nearly calm and mainly quiet with a low of 76.

The Perseid meteor showers will be visible late Saturday and Sunday nights (after 2 am) in the northeastern sky with about 60 flashes per hour)
