Partly cloudy skies and above average temperatures are expected today across deep south Texas with afternoon highs ranging from the upper 80s into the middle 90s. Mariners should expect smooth bay waters this morning before conditions build to a moderate chop for the afternoon with increasing breezes out of the southeast. Seas of 2 to 5 feet will be anticipated across the coastal gulf waters from 0 to 60 nautical miles out.
Partly cloudy skies accompanied by warm and humid conditions will be expected today at the area beaches. The high temperatures will push into the middle 80s this afternoon with heat indices or 'feels like' temperatures above 90 degrees. The rip current risk is moderate today due to swells coming off the gulf. If you plan on entering the water today, swim with a non-inflatable flotation device, such as a life jacket or boogie board. 
Anticipate a warm and humid evening for those heading out to the local football games with partly cloudy skies and light to modest southeast winds. Temperatures around kickoff will range from the upper 70s into the middle 80s before dipping into the mid and upper 70s by 11pm.
Warm and humid conditions will continue through the weekend across the valley and the rest of deep south Texas with afternoon temperatures generally in the 90s. A cold front will then move across the area from late Sunday afternoon and into the evening, with scattered showers and thunderstorms accompanying the front. Drier and cooler conditions will be expected for the early to middle half of next week behind late Sunday’s cold front.
