Seasonable conditions will be expected today across deep south Texas with some passing mid to high level clouds and high temperatures in the low to middle 70s. A weak, dry cold front advances across the region around midday. The only noticeable difference today with the cold front will be a slight uptick of the winds out of the north- northeast. For the mariners, expect a moderate chop on the bay and seas of 2 to 5 feet across the gulf waters from 0 to 60 nautical miles out.
A low risk of rip currents is expected today along the beaches of South Padre Island and at Boca Chica State Park. Even though there is a low risk of rip currents, life threatening rip currents are still possible, especially in the vicinity of the South Padre Island jetties. Northerly winds will be on the increase this afternoon behind the passage of a weak cold front around midday. Passing mid to high level clouds will be expected otherwise with afternoon temperatures near 70 degrees.
Generally, slightly below average to near seasonable conditions will be expected across the Rio Grande valley and deep south Texas through the rest of the workweek and for this upcoming weekend. A cold front will advance across the region on Thursday night with a slight chance for showers. Sunday will feature a slight chance of showers as well under mostly cloudy skies prior to the next cold front.
