CORPUS CHRISTI, TX — Upper level high pressure bridging from the Desert Southwest across South Texas continues to inhibit rain chances through Monday, but a weak mid-level disturbance will bring isolated showers and thunderstorms for your Tuesday.

The rest of the week looks hot and dry.

The disturbance on Tuesday originates in the Lower Mississippi Valley and moves southward, interacting with Gulf moisture to generate slight rain chances Tuesday afternoon and evening over the Coastal Bend.

Thereafter, expect the upper-level ridge to bridge across South Texas once again for the remainder of the week. That will mean highs in the middle 90s and lows in the upper 70s, very typical for this time of the year.

We can expect afternoon heat indices of between 105 and 109 today and again on Monday.
