The combination of cold temperatures and strong winds will result in temperatures feeling like they are below 30°F tonight across portions of Cameron and Willacy counties, so a Wind Chill Advisory is in effect from 3-9 AM Friday morning. Remember to wear an extra layer or two and bring in the pets and livestock. Also, be very cautious with indoor heaters!
A Wind Advisory is in effect today for Kenedy County and coastal Cameron and coastal Willacy counties. Sustained northerly winds of 20 to 35 mph are expected with frequent gusts of 30 to 40 mph. Be sure to bring inside or fasten down any light weight or easily moved items, such as patio furniture, portable basketball posts and trash cans. High profile or light weight vehicles will be difficult to drive, especially on bridges or overpasses and in crosswinds.
Gale Warnings have been issued for all of the lower Texas coastal waters and are in effect through midnight tonight for the Laguna Madre and through 6 am Friday for the Gulf Waters. Northerly winds will rapidly increase with gale conditions developing this morning as strong high pressure builds into the region behind a cold front. Sustained northerly winds of 25 to 30 knots are expected with frequent gusts of 35 to 40 knots. Seas across the Gulf waters will build steadily to 10 to 14 feet this afternoon.
Much colder weather has settled in across the region today and strong northerly winds will continue to bring in cooler temperatures overnight. A Wind Chill Advisory is in effect for coastal Cameron and Willacy from 3-9 AM Friday, but the cold will be experienced by everyone. Temperatures will feel like they are 25-35 area-wide, so be sure to bundle up the kids tomorrow morning and remember to bring pets indoors. Also, if you are using a space heater indoors, be very cautious you use it properly and do not leave it unattended.
Chilly temperatures are expected tonight as cold air spills across the Rio Grande Valley, with lows dropping into the mid to upper 30s north to the lower 40s south. Wind chill values may drop to 30 degrees in a few spots for an hour or so Friday morning. Be sure to prepare your heavier jackets before heading to work or school on Friday. Conditions will improve towards the end of the weekend and early next week with temperatures warming back up in the 70s and low 80s.
