Another hot, humid day is on the docket for deep South Texas with temperatures soaring into the 90s and 100s. Heat indices or “"feels like"” temperatures are expected to once again reach between 105 and 110 degrees this afternoon. Besides the hot conditions, expect a breezy afternoon featuring mostly sunny skies. For the mariners, expect a moderate chop to increase to choppy conditions across the bay and seas of 3 to 5 feet on the coastal gulf waters. Small craft should exercise caution on the Laguna Bay and across the gulf waters from 0 to 20 nautical miles today.
A moderate risk for rip currents will be expected today along the area beaches due to increased wind driven waves. Remember to swim near a lifeguard or use a non-inflatable flotation device, such as a life jacket or boogie board. Mostly sunny skies will be expected today with afternoon temperatures rising into the low 90s. The UV index remains extreme today, so be sure to grab the sunblock before heading out for the day. Otherwise, expect a breezy afternoon with southeasterly winds. Have a fun but safe day!
Isolated rain showers and thunderstorms will be expected through midweek with the arrival of some moisture off the gulf. Conditions will become dry for Friday and into the start of the weekend with mostly sunny skies. Otherwise, expect hot, humid conditions to continue across deep south Texas with highs ranging from the middle 90s to above the century mark across the region. Heat indices or "feels like"” temperatures of 105 to 110 degrees will be possible each afternoon through Saturday.
