Dewpoint numbers have been extremely high over the weekend and along with the warm temperatures they have shot heat indices in the 95-105 degree range for much of the Coastal Bend.

This pattern is not going to be changing much as we enter this week. Upper-level high pressure will be situated over the southeastern half of the US and as a series of lows dig into the southwestern US, it will keep winds elevated here along with very hot and humid conditions. Outside of a stray seabreeze shower in the afternoons with peak heating, rain will also be scarce and be moving by in northern parts of the state and missing us here in South Texas.

Tonight, expect mainly cloudy, muggy and warm conditions. A little patchy fog is possible in the low-lying areas where winds could relax some. Low: 79 Wind: SE 10-15MPH.

Monday will be hot, windy and very muggy with a high of 90. Winds will be gusting out of the south-southeast around 30-40MPH with sustained values of 20-30.

Much of the same will be in store the rest of the week with highs in the low 90s with very windy conditions sticking around through next weekend. With high dewpoints, each afternoon we’ll see heat indices climb around 95-105 degrees.

If you work outdoors for long periods of time, you are urged to drink plenty of water and stay hydrated to avoid heat exhaustion and heat stroke.
