Near Record Heat This Afternoon/Chantal Dissipates

CORPUS CHRISTI - Dry high pressure remains to be in control of our area and we got close to a record high yesterday afternoon reaching 97 degrees, just one shy of the record set back in 2009.

We will be close to record heat again today with a high around 98 degrees under mostly sunny skies and just a lonely seabreeze shower. The record high is 99 set back in 1975. Winds: SSE 10-20mph.

Tonight will be pleasant, but humid, with a couple of clouds and a low near 76 with light winds.

Chantal's fast movement along with strong upper level winds has sheared the tropical system apart and is no longer a tropical storm, but a disorganized wave. It will still bring heavy rain to parts of Cuba, the Dominican Republic, and Haiti. Scorching heat, with dangerous heat index values, will rule our forecast until the tropical moisture returns late in the weekend and early next week with a few scattered showers.
