CORPUS CHRISTI, TEXAS — Monday will be another hot, sticky day with light winds with isolated t-storms possible late in the day and evening.

The ridge of high pressure aloft has shifted to the west and is parked over the Great Basin. This will allow a weak cold front to move into South through Texas, bringing isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms to the Coastal Bend Monday night and Tuesday.

Unfortunately, not much rain is expected and will be hit and miss with the best chance inland with rainfall amounts up to a half-inch. Areas that get under a thunderstorm could see higher amounts.

We'll reach 96 in Corpus Christi with light winds, under 12 mph most of the day, and heat indices of 104-109 today.

Inland areas will reach the triple digits. By late afternoon and evening, isolated storms are possible mainly in our inland areas as a weak cold front drops in.

Tuesday will still be hot, reaching the mid-90s with widely scattered showers and t-storms.
