The onshore flow will increase this weekend which will lead to higher humidity and wind along with a chance of a stray coastal shower Sunday morning. Overall, we’ll see partly cloudy skies and hot, humid weather this weekend. If you are heading to the beach, it will be windy Saturday with southerly winds at 18-25 mph and waves coming up to 4 feet. There is a moderate rip current risk this weekend so use caution if you are heading into the water. Also, if the sky looks hazy this weekend, it’s likely due to Saharan dust carried into south Texas.
Minor upper air disturbances along with increased moisture could lead to an isolated shower or t-storm Monday and Tuesday but as high pressure aloft builds later next week, temperatures will heat up and we’ll stay dry. Summer officially begins next Friday the 21st.
In the night sky, Jupiter is shining brightly in the southeastern sky and over the next few nights, the moon can be seen to it’s upper right Friday and Saturday and to Jupiter’s lower left Sunday evening. The moon will be full at 3:31 AM Monday and is called the “Strawberry Moon”
