CORPUS CHRISTI — It's going to be a hot and breezy weekend here in the Coastal Bend. Look for an afternoon high around 95 degrees today. The heat index values will range from 104 to 109 degrees. People should use extreme caution when spending extended periods of time outdoors in the afternoon hours. It will also be a bit breezy with the winds picking up out of the southeast at 15 to 20 miles per hour. The forecast for tonight calls for partly cloudy skies with an overnight low around 77 degrees. We can expect similar weather conditions again on Sunday with a daytime high around 96 degrees.
We will see increasing moisture for the week ahead. We are also watching a front that could drop into Texas midweek. This will give us a pretty decent chance for scattered showers and thunderstorms. It will also drop our temperatures a few degrees for the latter half of the week.
