Record Heat Continues for First Day of Summer

CORPUS CHRISTI - The record high of 97 degrees was tied yesterday afternoon which makes five straight days of record heat for South Texas. The official start of summer began at approximately 12:04AM CDT and there are no hidden surprises in the forecast as another day of record heat is on tap.

Today will be mostly sunny, very hot, and breezy with only a stray inland shower along the afternoon seabreeze and a high of 97. The record is 97 set back in 2008. Winds: SE 10-20mph

Tonight will be quiet and warm with mainly clear skies and an overnight low in the upper 70s. Winds: SE 5-10mph

Tropical Storm Barry has dissipated in Mexico, has become post-tropical, and is continuing to bring heavy and flooding rains to that region. The rest of the tropics remain quiet. Dry high pressure will remain firmly anchored over South Texas and will only warrant a stray afternoon shower and a continuation of hot temperatures.

Sunday's full moon will be a "supermoon" , technically termed the "perigee full moon", and is closer to earth and will appear larger than normal in the night sky on Saturday night and into Sunday morning.
