CORPUS CHRISTI, TEXAS — The dry, hot weather pattern continues into the weekend and there is no relief and no rain through much of next week.

Temperatures will rise this weekend through Monday and the humidity will remain high, producing heat indices between 105 and 115 degrees each afternoon.

With dangerous afternoon heat indices, you'll want to protect yourself from heat-related illnesses by drinking lots of water, wear light-colored and loose fitted clothing, a hat, and get in places to cool off from time to time.

And also take care of the elderly and remember to give animals a cool place to rest and plenty of water.

Temperatures will climb into the upper 90s in Corpus Christi this weekend and from 100-105 inland with heat indices up to 115. Beaches will be warm, reaching near 90. Southeast winds will increase to 10-20 mph each afternoon with mostly sunny skies.

We'll continue to see above-average temperature through early next week but by late-week, will drop back to mid-July normals as the high-pressure area aloft shifts northeast. There is still no rain in the forecast through next week but forecast models indicate increasing moisture in the atmosphere by the weekend of the 18th which could lead to rain chances.
