Much cooler air has settled in with strong northwest winds pushing behind a cold front yesterday and today. As an upper level low pressure system moves northeastward into Central Texas, much drier air will filter in across Deep South Texas, so we expect any leftover showers to move out and lead to gradual clearing this afternoon. A Small Craft Advisory continues across the Gulf due to strong winds and elevated seas, but conditions should improve as winds lighten this afternoon.
Due to elevated wave heights in the nearshore waters, there is still a moderate risk of rip currents today. Conditions should improve tomorrow, as winds and seas subside. Weather conditions will be cloudy with scattered showers and much cooler temperatures.
As the upper level low pressure system moves out of the region, very pleasant weather conditions can be expected on Tuesday with warm temperatures and low Dew Points. Clouds and rain chances will move back in as our next strong cold front moves through overnight Wednesday into Thursday. Much cooler air is expected Friday morning with some areas dropping into the middle 30s with “even lower wind chill values.
