The Storm Prediction Center (SPC) has issued a slight risk of severe weather for our entire county warning area Tuesday and Tuesday night. Scattered strong to severe thunderstorms are possible across all of deep south Texas and the Rio Grande Valley due to the passage of a cold front. Potential threats include damaging winds, large hail, isolated tornadoes, moderate to heavy rain and frequent cloud to ground lightning. Potential impacts of severe weather include fence, tree, roof and home damage. Low lying areas or poorly draining areas may be at risk for flooding from any heavier downpours. To be prepared for severe weather: make sure trees are trimmed of dead branches, fences are secured, tie down lightweight objects, move vehicles into garages or carports, check the batteries and set your NOAA Weather Radio into the “Alert” mode. Additionally, make sure your family, co-workers and students know where their “safe place” is located (and the plan to get there), if a warning is issued.
A stalled front remains draped across the region tonight, with scattered showers and thunderstorms possible. Overnight low temperatures will drop into the low 70s north and mid to upper 70s south. Across the lower Texas coastal waters south southeast winds will average 7 to 12 knots, with a light chop on the Laguna and seas of 2 to 4 feet on the Gulf waters.
Strong to severe thunderstorms are possible Tuesday into Tuesday night as a cold front works through the Rio Grande Valley. Temperatures on Wednesday will cool only slightly before warm to hot conditions ramp up into the weekend with a strong ridge developing in northern Mexico. High temperatures Friday and Saturday could reach well into the triple digits for portions of the upper valley.
