CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Laura moves inland tonight over southwest Louisiana and will bring lots of heat and humidity but very little rainfall to the area.

Tropical humidity will continue to flow into the area through the weekend making it rather uncomfortable outdoors.

Tonight expect a few coastal showers, late light winds and unseasonably warm with a low of 78.

Thursday we will have isolated showers mainly near the coast, breezy and very hot with a high of 98 and a heat index topping 110+.

Thursday night will be breezy, warm and stuffy with a low near 80.

Friday just a stray shower, otherwise breezy and blazing hot with a high of 96 and a heat index again topping 110+.

Stay cool and stay tuned.
