CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — The sweltering heat continues Tuesday, but we'll see some relief later this week as temperatures come down a few degrees.

As the high-pressure dome aloft shifts to the north, upper-level winds will come in from the east increasing atmospheric moisture and sending upper-level disturbances through South Texas Friday through Sunday. It will provide us a chance of isolated showers with the best chance along the coast.

High temperatures will be closer to normal for mid-July this upcoming weekend.

Today looks mostly sunny, hot, and humid with a windy afternoon at the coast.

Highs will reach 95 in Corpus Christi and 100-105 inland while beaches will stay in the upper 80s. Southeast winds will increase to 20-25 mph by late afternoon near the coast with 15-20 mph winds inland. Heat indices will reach 105-112 during peak heating.
