[Update 8 am] Near record warmth expected across the Rio Grande Valley with high temperatures in the 90s across most of deep south Texas. Isolated showers and thunderstorms are possible along the northern and coastal areas of the region this morning, before mostly sunny skies take over for the day. Breezy conditions are expected early. The Small Craft Advisory for Gulf waters continues until 7pm this evening, and small craft should exercise caution on the Laguna Madre. Conditions begin to improve this afternoon into this evening.
There is a high risk of life threatening rip currents today at the beaches of South Padre Island and Boca Chica due to moderate wave heights. If you decide to enter the 75 degree surf, it is recommended to remain in water that is waist deep or less and to stay near a lifeguard, if possible. Breezy to windy conditions and isolated showers and thunderstorms possible this morning, with mostly sunny skies this afternoon. High temperatures in the low 90s. Don't forget to grab the sunscreen, and re-apply it often, if heading out for the day, as the UV index is in the very high to near extreme range.
A weak cold front moves south through the region late tonight into Thursday morning, yielding closer to normal temperatures on Thursday, before the weekend into next week warms back up. High temperatures range from the upper 80s to the mid and upper 90s Friday to Monday. Isolated showers and thunderstorms are possible in the lower valley Thursday morning with the cold front. The next chance of showers and thunderstorms starts late Saturday afternoon in the northern ranchlands, increasing into Sunday morning, mainly in the northern portions of deep south Texas. Breezy conditions are expected to continue into this weekend.
