Hot conditions with a mix of sun and clouds will be expected today across the region, with high temperatures ranging from the middle 80s along the coast to the low to middle 90s elsewhere. A few isolated showers will be expected today but will remain mainly along the coast and over the coastal gulf waters for this afternoon. For the mariners, expect light to moderate southeast winds with a building chop on the bay and gulf seas of 2 to 5 feet.
Easterly swells off the gulf remain elevated today, so a moderate risk of rip currents continues for the area beaches. If you decide to enter the surf today, use caution and remain in shallow water, especially in the vicinity of the South Padre Island jetties. Expect a warm afternoon featuring highs in the middle 80s and a slight chance for a few rain showers.
The Rio Grande valley and the rest of deep south Texas can expect the approach and passage of a cold front on Sunday evening. The cold front will provide a slight chance for showers and thunderstorms as it moves through the region. In the wake of the cold front, expect slightly cooler and drier conditions featuring afternoon highs generally in mid to upper 80s and overnight lows ranging from the middle 50s into the low 60s.
