CORPUS CHRISTI — It's going to be a long summer. Hot and humid weather will hold fast for most of the week with highs slightly above normal. Afternoon Heat Index will hoover around 106 to 108 so anyone working outdoors should take precautions with the heat. Strenuous work will lead to heavy perspiration and possible exhaustion.

Tropical Weather system: Here is a long term " heads up", Current computer models predict an area of low pressure developing off the coast of Florida this coming weekend. The "European" model then takes that low to the west over the Gulf water which could lead to some strengthening. Possible tropical storm? It's a bit too early to call it but we will be watching it's development for the next seven days.

Today: Sunny, hot and humid. Hugh 94. Heat Index 106.
Tuesday: Sunny, hot and humid. High 95. Heat Index 108.
Wednesday: Sunny, hot and humid. High 96. Heat Index 109.
Thursday: Sunny, hot and humid. High 97.
Friday: Partly cloudy, hot and humid. High 95.
