Spring-like weather will return today across Deep South Texas and the Rio Grande Valley with partly sunny skies and temperatures rising into the middle 70s and lower 80s. For the mariners, a small craft advisory continues through 3 PM this afternoon for continued elevated wave heights on the offshore gulf waters from 20 to 60 nm out. Out on the Laguna Madre, small craft should exercise caution this afternoon as southerly winds increase and the waters become rough.
A high risk for rip currents will be expected to continue today for the area beaches as a result of the continuation of elevated easterly waves and swell. Southerly winds will be on the increase during the day with breezy winds of 17 to 22 mph in the afternoon. Temperatures will be much warmer today with partly sunny skies. However, water temperatures do remain chilly with the recent cold snap. If you decide to enter the rough surf and chilly waters, be sure to stay near the beach patrol and use a non-inflatable flotation device, such as a life jacket or boogie board.
Take off your winter jackets and sweaters from the past few days as dry conditions and above average temperatures are expected for much of the upcoming workweek. A weak cold front is to advance towards the Rio Grande Valley on Thursday with the chance for rain showers but little change to the above average temperatures.
