Today, the first Sunday of December, will feature gloomy conditions with cool temperatures holding in the 50s to 60s and rain with overcast skies. A few thunderstorms may remain possible as well across the area throughout the morning and into the afternoon. For the mariners, a small craft advisory will remain in effect until midnight for the gulf waters with seas of 5 to 7 feet which may become occasionally higher. For the Laguna Madre, small craft are advised to exercise caution as northerly winds will lead to the development of choppy conditions.
A high risk of rip currents will continue today along the Lower Texas Coast with elevated wave heights. It is expected to be a gloomy day for beachgoers with overcast skies, cool temperatures and the likely chance of rain including the opportunity for possible isolated thunderstorms. Swimming is not recommended today but if you do decide to enter the surf, make sure to stay near a lifeguard and use a non- inflatable flotation device, such as a life jacket or boogie board.
Rain chances will linger into Monday morning before conditions dry out into late Monday as the upper level low pressure system lifts out. Expect a warming trend for Tuesday into Wednesday before the approach of the next cold front out of the north. Expect the chance for rain and thunderstorms with the front as it advances into and across Deep South Texas. Behind the front, expect a big drop in temperatures as highs don’t make it out of the 50s for the end of the workweek with lows falling into the 30s and 40s for early Friday morning. A lingering chance for showers and isolated thunderstorms will also exist for the late week in wake of the front.
