Plenty of sunshine will be expected today across deep south Texas with temperatures rising in excess of the century mark for areas located west of US highway 77. Heat indices or “feels like” temperatures will once again reach into the range of 103-108 degrees this afternoon. For the mariners, expect south to southeasterly winds with the bay increasing to a moderate chop in the afternoon and seas of 2 to 3 feet across the coastal gulf waters.
Another pleasant day will be expected today at the area beaches, with mostly sunny skies and high temperatures reaching to near 90 degrees in the afternoon. The rip current risk remains low today; however, rip currents often develop in the vicinity of the South Padre Island jetties, so use caution if you enter the surf. Remember the sunscreen with the UV index in the extreme range. Enjoy!
Deep south Texas will round out the weekend by remaining mostly sunny with hot conditions and heat indices in the range of 105 to 110 degrees Fahrenheit. Hot temperatures are expected to persist into the upcoming workweek but the afternoon highs shall trend closer to the seasonal normals with the expectation for increased cloud cover. Overnight lows are expected to remain in the middle to upper 70s. Chances for rain and isolated thunderstorms will return to deep south Texas through the upcoming workweek with increased moisture off the gulf and boundary influences from the north.
