[Update 10:45 am] Another breezy to windy and warm day across deep south Texas and the Rio Grande Valley today with highs approaching low to mid 90s inland and mid to upper 80s near the coast. A Small Craft Advisory for winds is in effect for the Laguna Madre until 7pm this evening. Small craft should exercise caution in nearshore and offshore Gulf waters today.
A high rip current risk is expected today on the beaches of South Padre Island and at Boca Chica Beach due to elevated swell and moderate wave heights. If you decide to enter the 73 degree surf, it's recommended to remain in water that is waist deep or less and to stay near a lifeguard, if possible. Breezy to windy conditions and mostly sunny skies with high temperatures in the lower 80s are expected today at the area beaches. Don't forget to grab the sunscreen if heading out for the day, as the UV index is in the very high to near extreme range.
Another warm and breezy week in store for the Rio Grande Valley and deep south Texas with high temperatures ranging from the mid and upper 80s to mid and upper 90s. A cold front works into the region Thursday morning, with isolated showers and thunderstorms possible early.
