Isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms are possible this afternoon in mainly central and western portions of deep south Texas and the Rio Grande Valley. Afternoon temperatures will range from the mid 90s to a few degrees above the century mark, which is near normal for late July in the region. A light chop on the bay will build to a moderate chop with southeast winds increasing this afternoon. Gulf seas of 2-4 feet are expected with isolated showers and thunderstorms in offshore waters, mainly beyond 20 nautical miles.
The rip current risk remains low today; however, rip currents are still possible, especially in the vicinity of the South Padre Island jetties. Another hot day expected along the lower Texas coast with high temperatures topping 90 degrees and heat indices approaching 108 degrees. Stay hydrated, wear loose-fitting and light-colored clothing, and seek out shade whenever possible. With UV Index values in the extreme range, remember to re-apply sunblock often. Have fun!
With a ridge of high pressure strengthening over the western Gulf late this week and into this weekend, expect hot and dry conditions to continue. Afternoon temperatures will level off between the mid 90s and a few degrees beyond 100. Heat indices or “feels like” temperatures of 105 to 110 degrees will be likely each afternoon. Overnight lows will remain close to normal, generally in the mid to upper 70s. The next chance of showers or thunderstorms returns to deep south Texas and the Rio Grande Valley early next week with an increase in moisture.
