Temperatures will cool into and throughout the night after today's record February heat. The cooler along with refreshing air will lead to a pleasant night with clear skies and overnight lows in the 50s to low 60s. For the mariners, expect south-southeasterly winds with a moderate chop on the bay and seas of 3 to 5 feet across the coastal gulf waters extending out to 60 nautical miles. Small craft should exercise caution across the coastal gulf waters for the elevated waves.
There is a high danger for the spread of fires on Friday across Deep South Texas. A Fire Weather Watch will be in effect for all of Deep South Texas except coastal Cameron and Coastal Willacy from 12 pm until 6 pm CST on Friday. Any fires that develop, would have the ability to spread quickly as a result of low humidity values and breezy northwesterly winds.
Dry conditions rule through the weekend and into next week for the Rio Grande Valley and Deep South Texas, with temperatures taking only a slight dip back into the low and mid 80s behind a weak cold front on Friday, before rising back into the 90s for much of the region into next week.
