Another mostly cloudy and cool day along the lower Texas coast into the south Texas brush country with isolated afternoon and evening rain expected across mainly eastern portions of the region. Temperatures top off near or into the 60s. Smooth conditions on the bay will build to a light chop and for those heading out to the Gulf waters, seas range from 2 to 4 feet.
A moderate risk of rip currents continues for area beaches. Life threatening rip currents are possible, especially near the South Padre Island jetties. If you enter the 60 degree surf, it is recommended to stay near a lifeguard and with a non-inflatable flotation device, such as a life jacket and boogie board. Cloudy skies and isolated evening showers are expected.
A weak cold front will move into deep south Texas Tuesday, providing a slight chance of showers and possibly an isolated thunderstorm, mainly across the lower Texas coast Monday and Tuesday. Another front moves through on Friday with another chance of showers. Temperatures will warm through late week into the upper 70s and low 80s before the front on Friday.
