Upper level high pressure will continue to build over South Texas the next several days. By the time we get to next week the high will shift east and north. This will have the effect of increasing the flow of tropical moisture into the area from the Gulf and this will produce a few showers for the area, mainly near the coast.

Tonight expect moon-lit skies nearly calm and quiet with a seasonal low of 75.

Thursday expect generally light winds sunny skies and blistering heat with a high of 99.

Thursday night will be tranquil with a low of 75 again under fair skies.

Friday will be sunny but a little more breezy with sweltering heat and a high of 98.

The heat index will top out near 110.
