Shower and thunderstorm chances increase today as an upper level low over Southern California approaches and moisture ahead of it increases across our area. The Storm Prediction Center has placed much of Deep South Texas in a marginal risk of severe weather today and tonight as a cold front remains nearly stationary to our north. The best chance of stronger storms will be later this evening and tonight as storms may develop over the higher terrain of Mexico and move into South Texas. The main threat will be damaging winds and hail up to quarter-size.
There is a moderate risk of rip currents today along the Lower Texas Coast with elevated wave heights in the surf zone. If you decide to enter the surf, remain in shallow water and near a lifeguard. Weather conditions will be unsettled with mostly cloudy skies and scattered showers and storms.
Unsettled weather will continue in Deep South Texas this weekend as moisture increases ahead of an upper level low pressure system moving in from the west. It is looking like the best chance of rain will be in the latter half of the weekend, with a few strong storms being possible. Conditions will clear out on Tuesday with temperatures warming up a few degrees before another cold front moves through on Wednesday.
