Much cooler conditions are expected today across the Rio Grande valley and deep south Texas with afternoon highs only reaching into the upper 60s to near 70 degrees. Skies will trend mostly clear for the majority of the region while breezy north to northeasterly winds will continue along the immediate coast. Mariners should expect Small Craft Advisory conditions with rough to choppy conditions across the bay and gulf seas ranging from 6 to 9 feet for the nearshore waters to 7 to 10 feet, occasionally 12 feet on the offshore waters from 20 to 60 nautical miles out.
Stronger winds and high wave heights behind last night's cold front will result in a high risk of rip currents today; life threatening rip currents are likely in the surf zone. Breezy northerly winds are expected today with gusts up to 30 mph. Otherwise, temperatures will be on the cool side with highs only reaching into the upper 60s under mostly sunny to partly cloudy skies.
Mild to warm conditions will be expected for Thanksgiving week across the Rio Grande valley and deep south Texas with afternoon highs ranging from the 70s into the 80s. Expect a chance for rain on Monday along the coast and across the lower Valley with showers coming off the gulf. A cold front will sweep across the region late on Tuesday into early Wednesday morning which will lead to breezy conditions on the coast on Wednesday and pleasant weather across the valley for the Thanksgiving holiday.
