Cold front pushes southward today bringing isolated showers to mainly eastern portions of Deep South Texas and the Rio Grande Valley. Temperatures ahead of the front will rise into the mid and upper 80s. Small craft should exercise caution on Gulf waters beyond 20 nautical miles. There is a Small Craft Advisory in effect for all coastal, nearshore, and offshore waters this evening through Thursday afternoon.
The moderate risk of rip currents will continue today with seas of 3 to 5 feet and expected to build this evening. If you decide to go to the beach for a swim, be sure to use caution and remain in water that is waist-deep or less, especially if you are a poor swimmer. Mostly cloudy skies and isolated showers will dominate the weather today as a front moves through. Temperatures will rise into the lower 80s before falling slowly behind the front.
Temperatures will drop to below-normal values for the first few days of March behind the cold front moving through the region today, with highs in the upper 60s and low to mid 70s into the weekend. A warm front brings an increased chance of showers and thunderstorms Saturday into Sunday, with lingering coastal showers into Monday.
