CORPUS CHRISTI - We neared 100 degrees yesterday afternoon under mostly sunny skies and we will do much of the same for today as the stubborn dome of high pressure continues to stay right over us and keep any chance of relief at bay.
Your Friday is going to continue to be very hot with highs nearing the triple digits again this afternoon with heat index values around 105-111. Winds: SSE 10-20
Tonight will be muggy and warm, but pleasant, under mostly clear skies and an overnight low falling into the upper 70s.
There will be a few showers that form off in the Gulf over the weekend and some of that activity will try to push into the area along the seabreeze. However with so much dry air in place, the majority of the light rainfall will stay offshore and dissipate before reaching the coast. Tropics remain quiet.
