CORPUS CHRISTI, TEXAS — We're ending June with hot, sticky, windy weather and dangerous afternoon heat indices of 105-113 degrees.

A stray shower is possible inland this afternoon but most areas will have a dry day. High pressure aloft will dominate our weather through the holiday weekend, keeping it dry and hot with lighter winds this weekend.

Skies will be hazy as Saharan dust moves through the next several days, giving us unhealthy air quality for sensitive groups Wednesday.

Tuesday looks partly sunny and hazy with highs in the low 90s in Corpus Christi to the upper 90s inland and upper 80s beaches with southeast winds at 15-25 mph, highest at the coast. There is a Heat Advisory from 2-6 PM inland where heat indices will reach 110-113. Coastal areas will see heat indices of 105-109 this afternoon.

Wednesday will be hazy, hot, humid, and windy with highs from the upper 80s beaches to the upper 90s inland and heat indices from 105-112 in the afternoon, highest inland and southeast winds at 15-25 mph.

Thursday and Friday will continue to be dry, hazy, hot and humid but not as windy. Heat indices will reach 104-110 with southeast winds at 10-20 mph.
