The February finale of 2017 will be another hot one, with temperatures topping out in the mid to upper 90s. Breezy conditions along the coast and early cloud cover may help keep temperatures just out of the 90s, but still near record values for the day. For the mariners, near small craft advisory conditions expected on the bay today due to winds and in offshore Gulf waters beyond 20 nautical miles due to elevated seas.
With continued elevated wave heights in the nearshore Gulf waters, the moderate risk of rip currents will continue today. 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. If you just want to lay out on the beach, weather conditions will be very nice with mostly sunny skies and temperatures in the mid to upper 80s. Don’t forget the sunblock!
The next cold front moves through Deep South Texas and the Rio Grande Valley on Wednesday with isolated showers and thunderstorms. Temperatures will drop to below-normal values for the beginning of March with highs in the upper 60s to low 70s heading into the weekend before temperatures rebound into the 80s by Sunday.
