Areas of dense fog persist across the Laguna Madre and the nearshore Gulf waters. A Dense Fog Advisory has been issued and is in effect until 11 am for these areas. Visibility will be reduced to a quarter of a mile or less in some areas. Mariners are reminded to use caution and slow down.
Record breaking heat expected across the region today. It might be January, but it sure won't feel like it today. As soon as the clouds break today and dew points fall, temperatures will soar, with highs pushing into the lower to mid 90s across the Rio Grande Valley and the upper 80s across the northern ranchlands.
Starting the weekend out at South Padre Island or Boca Chica Beach? You can expect plenty of sunshine this afternoon and temperatures warming into the mid 70s. The risk of rip currents remains low today; however, rip currents often occur in the vicinity of the South Padre Island Jetties.
A high fire danger is expected on Sunday across all of Deep South Texas and the Rio Grande Valley. A fire weather watch has been issued for Sunday from 9 am to 6 pm CST as any fires that develop would have the ability to spread quickly as a result of low humidity values and windy conditions from the northwest.
A dry cold front moves across Deep South Texas late tonight into Sunday morning bringing strong northwesterly winds of 30 to 40 mph with gusts to around 45 mph in its wake and a wind advisory will likely be needed. The combination of the strong and gusty winds and low relative humidity, will lead to a high fire danger on Sunday. Next week starts off dry and sunny with above normal temperatures and the next cold front pushes across the region on Wednesday bringing slightly cooler temperatures.
