CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Upper-level high pressure will assert its dominance over our weather pattern for much of the upcoming work week.

That means that we’ll have a lot of sinking air in place which will promote plenty of summer-like heat and squash any chance of meaningful rainfall over South Texas.

The National Weather Service Office in Corpus Christi has issued a Heat Advisory for our inland counties from 1-8PM for heat indices hovering around 105°-110°.

Residents, even though outside of the heat advisory, are urged to stay cool and drink plenty of water. Seek the shaded spots frequently if outdoors for a prolonged period of time.

Winds will be on the elevated side through about the middle part of the week with sustained winds around 15-25 MPH with gusts around 30-40 MPH.

The rip current risk for today and tomorrow will remain high as well. Those heading out to the area beaches are urged to use extreme caution and remain in knee-deep water and stay near lifeguards. Whether or not if you are an experienced swimmer. A rip current can be overpowering if caught in one.

Today: Partly cloudy skies, very hot, humid and windy; Heat Advisories posted for inland areas for heat indices around 105°-110°…High: 92…Wind; SE 15-25 MPH & gusting around 35-40 MPH.
