CORPUS CHRISTI, TEXAS — September is starting off with more hot, sticky, windy weather, and dangerous heat indices.

We'll continue to have above average temperatures and high humidity with mostly sunny skies the next few days.

There is some relief showing up for the upcoming weekend as moisture increases ahead of a weak cold front which will give us a better chance of rain and bring temperatures down a few degrees.

Today, we'll reach 97 in Corpus Christi with inland areas up to 102 and low 90s at the coast and it will be windy with southeast winds at 15-25 mph.

The humidity will produce heat indices of 110-118, highest in inland Kleberg and Jim Wells counties where an Excessive Heat Warning is in effect from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.

The rest of the Coastal Bend is in a Heat Advisory due to heat indices at 110-114 Tuesday afternoon.
