CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — MONDAY: The workweek will start off similar to the weekend for the Coastal Bend. Other than some morning clouds, much of the day will feature mainly sunny skies and hot temperatures. Afternoon highs will climb into the lower to middle 90s. Heat index values will once again climb over 100 degrees.
LOOKING AHEAD: As high pressure that has been in control of our Coastal Bend weather the past week moves westward, shower chances return to the forecast for the upcoming workweek. These will be day-to-day chances, with many hours being quiet. The greatest rain chances will be towards the end of the week when tropical moisture moves in.
TROPICS: The National Hurricane Center continues to highlight the Bay of Campeche for tropical development headed into the week. Their latest update gives a 50% chance for development over the next five days from Invest 92-L. Any impacts to the Coastal Bend would likely be during the upcoming weekend. The latest models will continue to be analyzed and the latest updates will be posted.
Two factors that may limit development in the tropics late-week is Saharan dust and wind shear. Both are limiting factors in tropical development and may be a factor with this system.
