A beautiful day will be expected for the Rio Grande Valley and the rest of deep south Texas with sunny skies, low humidity values and mild afternoon temperatures in the low to middle 80s. For the mariners, expect north winds of around 10 to 15 knots with a moderate chop on the bay and gulf seas of 3 to 6 feet. Small craft should exercise caution on the gulf waters from 20 to 60 nm offshore.
A moderate risk for rip currents will be expected today along the area beaches for continued elevated wave action. Remember to swim near a lifeguard if possible or use a non-inflatable flotation device, such as a life jacket or boogie board. Sunny skies will be expected today with temperatures reaching to near 80 degrees and north winds of 15 to 20 mph. Enjoy as it should be a beautiful day for a stroll on the beach with lower humidity values.
Another pleasant day will be expected on Wednesday after one more cool morning with sunny skies and warm afternoon temperatures. Clouds, humidity and overnight temperatures will then rise into the latter half of the week and for the weekend with the return of an onshore flow off the Gulf of Mexico. Additionally, do anticipate a return of shower and thunderstorm chances with added influence from passing troughs of low pressure within the upper levels of the atmosphere.
