Partly sunny skies and hot temperatures continue today across the Rio Grande Valley and deep south Texas. Scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms will be possible, especially along the sea breeze. If you have outside activities planned today, be sure to stay hydrated, seek shade when you can, and if you hear thunder roar, head indoors. For the mariners, expect light to moderate southeast breezes with a moderate chop on the Laguna Madre and Gulf seas of 2 to 4 feet out 60 nautical miles.
The low risk of rip currents will continue today along the beaches of South Padre Island and at Boca Chica State park. Even though the rip current risk is low, life threatening rip currents are still possible, especially in the vicinity of the South Padre Island Jetties. Otherwise, partly sunny skies are expected with scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms, especially early this afternoon. Remember: If thunder roars, go indoors!
Daily chances for isolated showers and thunderstorms are expected this weekend into next week, mainly across the eastern half of deep south Texas including the lower valley, with increased Gulf moisture and the inland progression of the sea breeze. Otherwise, hot and humid conditions will prevail into the weekend with partly cloudy skies. High temperatures are expected to generally remain in the 90s to near 100 with a slight break in triple digit heat possible next week. Overnight lows will range from the mid to upper 70s into the weekend with low to mid 70s into next week.
