Another round of above normal high temperatures today with afternoon readings ranging from the mid and upper 90s to near 105 in portions of the mid and upper Rio Grande Valley. Small craft should exercise caution in coastal and nearshore waters of the lower Texas coast as breezy conditions may create hazardous conditions for small craft on the Laguna Madre and Gulf waters out 20 nautical miles. Expect a moderate chop becoming choppy on the bay with Gulf seas of 2-3 feet. Isolated showers and thunderstorms are possible in the offshore Gulf waters, mainly beyond 20 nautical miles.
[Update 930 am] The rip current risk remains low today. Although the rip current risk remains low, rip currents are still possible, especially in the vicinity of the South Padre Island Jetties. It looks to be hot again today under partly cloudy skies with heat index values up to 108-109 degrees this afternoon. Remember to stay hydrated, seek out shade when possible, wear light-colored and loose- fitting clothing and re-apply sunblock often. Have fun!
Hot, dry and breezy conditions continue across portions of deep south Texas and the Rio Grande Valley this weekend into the start of next week with high temperatures reaching slightly below or above 105 degrees.
