A pleasant day can be expected across the Rio Grande Valley and Deep South Texas today with sunny skies and mild afternoon temperatures. For the mariners, expect a light to modest northwest flow across the waters throughout morning before the winds turn out of the south- southeast during the afternoon hours. A light chop is expected across the Laguna Madre while the Lower Texas coastal gulf waters feature seas of 2 to 5 feet. Small craft should exercise caution on the gulf waters extending 20 to 60 nautical miles out.
Today will feature plenty of sunshine with temperatures warming up into the lower 70s for the afternoon. A high UV index can be expected today, so it would be a good idea to apply sunscreen periodically. The risk of rip currents is low today for those braving the cool waters, however, rip currents do often occur in the vicinity of the South Padre Island Jetties.
Tuesday will trend warm to hot with possible record high temperatures across the Rio Grande Valley. Additionally, a fire danger is to exist with increased southerly winds and low relative humidity values, especially the Lower Valley. A fire danger will continue into the day on Wednesday following the passage of a dry cold front as a result of breezy northwest winds and the remaining of low relative humidity values across the region. The second half of the workweek will trend cooler and dry following the front on Wednesday. Saturday can expect cloudy skies with cooler temperatures and the chance for rain.
