The main players in today’s forecast will be the approaching upper level low pressure system over northwest Mexico and a nearly- stationary warm front draped across the northern Ranchlands. With a warm and dry layer near the surface in the Lower Valley, confidence is low on higher rain chances, but a few will be possible later this afternoon if we see decent surface heating. The best chance will be in the Ranchlands in the vicinity of the front, which will provide additional lift. There is also the possibility of a few strong to severe storms this afternoon and evening, so stay tuned to any forecast updates.
There is a high risk of rip currents today along the Lower Texas Coast with strong southeast winds and increased wave heights in the surf zone. If you decide to enter the surf, remain in shallow water and near a lifeguard. Weather conditions will include mostly cloudy skies with an isolated shower or thunderstorm.
Unsettled weather expected across Deep South Texas late this weekend as an upper level low pressure system approaches the region ahead of a cold front. It is looking like the best chance of rain will be on Sunday into Sunday night. Conditions will clear out on Tuesday with temperatures warming up a few degrees before another cold front moves through on Wednesday. Big changes will come with this strong front with much cooler temperatures behind it at the end of the week.
