CORPUS CHRISTI - We broke another record high yesterday afternoon to make 4 straight days of either tying or breaking previous record highs. Our weather pattern has been dominated by a high pressure ridge that will remain in place for the next several days.
Today will be mostly sunny with a few overhead clouds and an afternoon high in the mid to upper 90s around 98 degrees. Record for this date is 97 set back in 1969. Winds: SE 15-25 and gusting.
Tonight will be warm and muggy with lows in the upper 70s to lower 80s with mainly clear skies.
Friday is the first "official" day of summer (12:04AM CDT to be exact; the summer solstice) and the hot temperatures are expected to continue with highs in the 90s. There are a few showers late in the weekend and early next week as the high pressure moves slightly east, but a big washout is not expected. Tropical Storm Barry will make landfall this morning near Veracruz Mexico and bring flooding rains to that region and only bring a moderate risk for rip currents to our gulf waters.
