CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Morning clouds gave way to a fair, windy, warm and humid afternoon this Sunday. Onshore winds gusting over 30 mph will persist Monday through Wednesday, keeping rip current and fire danger high. Heat indices will exceed 100 degrees inland. Showers and storms return Thursday night and early Friday. A series of disturbances moving through the Southern Plains will keep South Texas windy until a cold front Thursday night brings a good chance of showers and thunderstorms. Meantime, a weak upper level trough will induce thunderstorms tonight in the Edwards Plateau, those storms dying before reaching the Coastal Bend. A few remnant showers is all we will see early Monday. The rain chance late in the week may prove significant, however, with early model runs suggesting one to three inches of rain possible. Expect afternoon temperatures from the upper 80s to lower 90s, except near 100 inland. Lows will remain in the lower to middle 70s.
