Deep south Texas and the Rio Grande valley can expect fog to linger across the region into the mid-morning hours.  Motorists should use caution on the roadways with fog by slowing down, using low beam headlights and avoid tailgating. More sunshine expected today with high temperatures approaching and possibly topping record values in many locations. There will be a moderate chop on the bay and Gulf seas of 2-4 feet in nearshore and offshore waters.
A low risk of rip currents is expected today along the beaches of South Padre Island and at Boca Chica Beach. 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. Partly sunny skies with highs in the mid 80s should make for another excellent day at the beach, or break from the near-record or record breaking heat inland today! An elevated risk for life threatening rip currents is expected to develop again on Saturday and continue into Monday morning with the passage of a cold front.
Partly cloudy and warm to kick things off this evening across the RGV under the Friday night lights with temperatures in the mid and upper 70s to the low 80s. A southeast wind at 14-18 mph may be just enough to squeeze an extra yard or two out of any game-winning field goal attempts.
Near record to record highs expected on Saturday prior to a cold front pushing through deep south Texas, with cooler temperatures to follow into Tuesday morning. Near normal high temperatures return Tuesday prior to another cold front. Isolated showers are possible late Saturday afternoon into Saturday night and again along and off the coast early next week. Overnight lows will bottom out into the 40s for much of the northern ranchlands Monday morning, making for a cold morning at the bus stop.
