CORPUS CHRISTI, TEXAS — Scattered showers and storms with locally heavy rain will continue through early afternoon with localized flooding possible.

Rain will decrease through late afternoon and evening with drier weather tonight into the weekend.

Saharan dust is over the Coastal Bend and will make skies hazy before moving out Sunday. High pressure aloft will build over south Texas giving us a drier weather pattern for the weekend into next week with summer heat and humidity.

The weekend will be mainly dry with highs near 90 in Corpus Christi Saturday and a hazy sky as the Saharan dust will still be thick, moving out Sunday. Sunday will be hotter, reaching the lower 90s with partly cloudy skies.

The humidity will be high, producing heat indices up to 108 Sunday afternoon and it will be windy with southeast winds at 15-25 mph.
