CORPUS CHRISTI, TEXAS — July is ending with quiet weather as high-pressure ridge aloft continues to dominate.

Friday will be mostly sunny, hot, and humid with a high of 96 and the heat index reaching 105-110 with southeast winds of 8-16 mph.

A weak cold front is forecast to move south and stall north of San Antonio Saturday. Showers and t-storms will form along and ahead of this boundary but will weaken as they move into South Texas and a more stable atmosphere. It's possible that a few could make it into the Coastal Bend Saturday but most areas will stay dry.

Lingering moisture ahead of the boundary could cause an isolated shower to develop Sunday along with the sea breeze.

Expect a typical August weekend with high temperatures in the mid-90s in Corpus Christi and heat indices up to 110.

Next week, we'll have less wind and hotter temperatures with highs in the upper 90s early in the week and plenty of sunshine.
