Another cloudy and cold day will be expected across deep south Texas with rain chances gradually on the increase throughout the day. Temperatures will top out in the low to middle 40s this afternoon. For the mariners, expect moderate north to northeast winds today across the coastal waters with a moderate chop on the bay and gulf seas of 3 to 6 feet. Small craft should exercise caution on the offshore gulf waters from 20 to 60 nautical miles out.
Another cold and poor beach day will be expected along the beaches of South Padre Island and at Boca Chica Beach. A high risk of life threatening rip currents will be likely in the surf zone today due to the combination of elevated wave heights and local tidal effects from the new moon phase. Expect overcast skies today with temperatures rising to near 50 degrees and the likely chance for rain, especially late.
One more cool, cloudy and wet day will be expected on Friday before the wind switches from the north to out of the south and southeast. With the southerly winds and partly cloudy skies, temperatures will warm this weekend into 70s and 80s. Breezy conditions will be possible on Sunday in advance of a cold front. This front will move across the region Sunday night and will result in breezy conditions Monday morning and seasonable temperatures for the start of next week.
