The Saharan dust has returned which will make our skies hazy over the next few days.
Wednesday will be partly sunny, hazy, hot and humid with high temperatures in the low 90s in Corpus Christi, upper 90s inland and upper 80s beaches with southeast winds at 15-25 mph. The humidity will make it feel hotter with heat indices from 105 coasts to 112 inland in the afternoon.
