Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Corpus Christi TX
731 PM CDT Thu Jul 19 2018

.DISCUSSION...

Have cancelled the heat advisory for this evening as heat index
values have dropped below advisory criteria. Some areas may need a
heat advisory once again tomorrow, but will let the midnight shift
make a decision on that with new forecast package. As far as the
rest of tonight, forecast looks on track with generally quiet
conditions.

SHORT TERM (This evening through Friday)...
Hot and hotter conditions are on tap as upper-level ridging
continues to dominate the forecast. A Heat Advisory remains in
effect for San Patricio, Nueces, Kleberg, and Jim Wells counties
until 9 PM CDT this evening. Corpus Christi has been reporting
heat index values of near 113-114 degrees for much of the
afternoon, with not much to suggest that tomorrow will be much
different. Please limit outdoor activities and practice good heat
safety, including wearing lightweight clothing and drinking plenty
of water, even if you don`t feel thirsty.

LONG TERM (Friday Night through Wednesday)...
Hot weather continues through pretty much the whole forecast
period, with even hotter temperatures possible this weekend into
early next week. The upper ridge begins to slide back westward a
bit on Tuesday as an upper low over the Gulf tries to push
westward towards the area. With an increase in PWs during this
time coupled with the slight retreat of the ridge, some isolated
showers and thunderstorms may be possible over the coastal zones
and waters around midweek. Conditions will still be quite hot,
though, so continue to practice smart heat safety throughout the
period.
