Deep south Texas will see plenty of sun today with occasional pockets of clouds. Temperatures this afternoon will rise above the century mark to the west of US highway 77 while areas to the east of the highway hover in the 90s. Heat indices or “feels like” temperatures are expected to reach between 103 and 108 degrees Fahrenheit. For the mariners, expect south-southeast breezes with a light chop building to a moderate chop on the bay for the afternoon and coastal gulf seas of 1 to 3 feet.
A low risk for rip currents will continue today at the area beaches. Even though the rip current risk is low today, life threatening rip currents are still possible, especially in the vicinity of the South Padre Island Jetties. Expect mostly sunny skies with southeasterly winds of 10 to 20 mph in the afternoon with higher gusts. Bring the sunscreen as the UV index exists within the extreme range. Enjoy!
Hot and dry conditions will be expected throughout the weekend across deep south Texas featuring mostly sunny skies, temperatures from the middle 90s to well above the century mark and heat indices or “feels like” temperatures ranging from 103 to 108 degrees. Chances for rain showers and/or thunderstorms will return to deep south Texas and the Rio Grande Valley this upcoming week with increased moisture coming off the gulf and boundary influences from the north.
