CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — TUESDAY: Hot and humid with highs in the low 90s. Heat index between 100 and 105. Partly cloudy skies with a few isolated showers or storms possible. SSE winds at 7-17 mph.
LOOKING AHEAD: Rain chances continue the next several days. Isolated to scattered showers and storms will be possible each day through the end of the week. A slight lull in activity is expected Thursday. No day in the forecast will be a washout, but keep that umbrella handy for hit/miss activity expected.
About a half inch to an inch of rain is likely across the Coastal Bend through the end of the workweek. Greatest amounts likely north of our area into Central Texas.
TROPICS: Hurricane Sam continues to push through the Central Atlantic as a strong, category 4 storm. Sam is expected to move north of the Lesser Antilles the next few days, and move just east of the island of Bermuda this weekend.
Meanwhile, there are two tropical waves moving off the African coast that have a high chance of development over the next five days. Something to watch, but not worry about at this time.
