CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Another round of heat advisories have been issued for the Coastal Bend today from 1-7 p.m. for heat indices around 105-115. This is all courtesy of upper-level high pressure that continues to linger close by and promote lots of sunshine and hot temperatures for South Texas.

There are a few weak fronts in north Texas and in the Central Plains that will help usher in some stronger winds here in South Texas for the next several days and that will help to keep heat index values up and also keep our fire danger high.

Please be mindful when outdoors and dealing with sparks and flames. With dry vegetation, it won't take much to catch it on fire. Parking in dry grass or even mowing dry grass can cause a wildfire to occur.

Outside of a stray shower tomorrow and Saturday, we'll remain dry and scorching hot. Temperatures will continue to be forecast at or just above the seasonal average.

The tropical Atlantic is still quiet with no new tropical development forecast for the next 5-days.
