Record High Challenged Again Today; Depression Two No Threat to S. Texas

CORPUS CHRISTI - Last week we had a few days of showers and thunderstorms which have been traded for some serious heat in South Texas thanks to high pressure firmly in control of our area.

Today will be mainly sunny with a few clouds lingering overhead and afternoon highs skyrocketing to the upper 90s and heat index values around 105-110 degrees. Winds: SE 10-20mph and gusting

Tonight expect a relatively quiet and warm night with lows dropping once again to the upper 70s and lower 80s.

Tropical Depression #2 will remain well to our south and not play a factor in our weather directly as the high pressure will keep it clear of the area. However, we could see some increased swells and an increased risk for rip currents by the end of the week. If the activity lingers to the south, we could see some moisture thrown to the Coastal Bend later in the week, but will not amount to much.
