Isolated rain showers and thunderstorms will be expected across portions of deep south Texas with an inland progressing sea breeze this afternoon. Expect partly cloudy skies with high temperatures ranging from the 90s to above the century mark. For the mariners, anticipate light to moderate breezes out of the southeast with the Laguna Madre building to a moderate chop during the afternoon and gulf seas of 2 to 3 feet from 0 to 60 nautical miles out.
A low risk for rip currents is expected today along the beaches of South Padre Island and at Boca Chica Beach. Even though the rip current risk is low today, life threatening rip currents are still possible, especially in the vicinity of the South Padre Island Jetties. Expect partly cloudy skies today with southeasterly winds of 10 to 15 mph in the afternoon. Bring the sunscreen as the UV index exists within the extreme range. Have a fun and safe day at the beach!
With a strengthening ridge of high pressure, expect hot and dry conditions to continue through the weekend. Afternoon temperatures are expected to top out from the middle 90s across the coastal counties to well above the century mark over central and western areas of deep south Texas. Heat indices or “feels like” temperatures of 105 to 110 degrees will be likely each afternoon. Overnight lows will remain close to normal, generally in the middle to upper 70s. The next chance of showers or thunderstorms returns to deep south Texas and the Rio Grande Valley early next week with an increase in moisture.
