Record breaking heat will be possible today across the Rio Grande Valley with windy conditions across the eastern half of the region. A wind advisory is in effect for Cameron, Hidalgo, Kenedy and Willacy counties from 10 am to 5 pm for winds of 25 to 30 mph with higher gusts. With the dry air and windy conditions, an elevated fire danger also exists today, generally east of Highway 281. For the mariners, a small craft advisory is in effect until 6 pm CST for all the coastal waters with choppy conditions on the bay and gulf seas of 4 to 7 feet.
There is a high fire spread danger for Wednesday across central and western portions of Deep South Texas. A Fire Weather Watch is in effect for Zapata, Jim Hogg, Brooks, Starr, and Hidalgo counties from 12 pm to 6 pm CST on Wednesday. Any fires that develop would have the ability to spread quickly as a result of low humidity values and windy conditions from the northwest.
A moderate risk for rip currents will be expected today for the area beaches as a result of elevated wind driven waves coming off the gulf. Expect mostly sunny skies with afternoon temperatures in the upper 70s. If you decide to enter the waters, be sure to use a non- inflatable flotation device, such as a life jacket or boogie board. A wind advisory is in effect until 5 pm this afternoon. As such, it is a good day to fly a kite!
A dry cold front will sweep across Deep South Texas on Wednesday morning with breezy northerly winds in its wake. These northerly breezes along with continued dry air will result in an elevated fire danger through Wednesday afternoon. Near normal temperatures are expected for the end of the workweek with mostly sunny skies on Thursday and partly sunny skies on Friday. The weekend will turn cooler with cloudy skies and the chance of rain as a low pressure weather system in the upper levels of the atmosphere approaches the region.
