CORPUS CHRISTI - Thanks to high pressure out to the west and low pressure out to the east of South Texas, our weather pattern is not going to change much over the next several days as dry air continues to filter into the area which will lead to relatively cool nights (for Coastal Bend standards) and still hot afternoons.
Today will be mostly sunny to partly cloudy, only a lonely stray shower, with highs reaching the upper 90s for almost the entire area with the exception of right along the coastline. Record temperature of 97 will be challenged. Winds: ESE 10-20mph
Tonight will begin mostly clear with higher based clouds moving in overnight with near record lows in the lower 70s.
Fourth of July festivities still look to be fantastic with highs in the middle to upper 90s and a gentle breeze throughout the day. The pertinent weather pattern will finally break up heading into the weekend and moisture from the Gulf will finally return and give way to just a few showers for the end of the weekend and into next week. Most of all, humidity and winds will be on the rise.
