Another cool overcast day is expected across the Rio Grande valley and deep south Texas with areas of light rain and drizzle. Rain chances will slowly diminish across the region, especially out west, into and throughout tonight. For the mariners, expect light west to northwest breezes with a light chop on the bay and gulf seas of 3 to 6 feet, occasionally 7 feet on the gulf waters from 20 to 60 nm out. Small craft should exercise caution today from 20 to 60 nm out.
Another cold and poor beach day will be expected along the beaches of South Padre Island and at Boca Chica Beach with areas of light rain and a moderate risk of rip currents. If you do decide to enter the chilly 50 degree surf, please use caution and remain in shallow water, especially in the vicinity of the South Padre Island jetties.
Much warmer conditions are expected for the weekend with a mix of sun and clouds. Winds will pick up out of the southeast to breezy levels on Sunday in advance of the next cold front. This weak cold front will only bring a slight chance for rain late Sunday and near seasonable temperatures for the beginning of next week. Rain chances return late Tuesday night into Wednesday as a surface boundary lifts to the north and interacts with an upper level trough of low pressure.
