A beautiful Thanksgiving will be expected across the Rio Grande valley and deep south Texas under sunny skies. Temperatures will start off on the chilly side this morning but will become mild in the 70s during the afternoon. For the mariners, expect light to moderate northerly winds today with a light chop across the bay and gulf seas subsiding from 3 to 6 feet to 2 to 4 feet by the afternoon. Small craft are urged to exercise caution on the offshore waters from 20 to 60 nm out this morning. Happy Thanksgiving!
A moderate risk of rip currents is expected for Thanksgiving along the area beaches. If you decide to enter the surf, use caution and remain in shallow water, especially in the vicinity of the South Padre Island jetties. Expect beautiful conditions for any outdoor holiday festivities on the beach with sunny skies and high temperatures up in the upper 60s. Happy Thanksgiving!
Bring a jacket or sweater with you if you're heading to the local shopping centers for the Black Friday deals but do expect to remove the layers as temperatures warm towards midday.
