Slow Moving Cold Front Moves into the Central U.S.

A slow moving cold front continues to move eastward across the U.S. this weekend. Behind the cold front is unseasonably cold weather and high elevation snows; ahead of the front, temperatures are more typical of mid-summer. The front separating these extremes will help focus heavy rain, with the potential for flash flooding extending from eastern New Mexico and western Texas to the Upper Midwest. Read More >

The weekend starts off with a mix of sun and clouds and hot conditions, with highs ranging from the lower to mid 90s across the coastal counties to near the century mark from Rio Grande City towards Zapata. Isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms possible once again today across the Rio Grande Valley and Deep South Texas, some of which could become strong this afternoon and evening. A moderate chop is likely on the bay waters by this afternoon with Gulf seas of 2 to 4 feet, accompanied by southeast winds of 10 to 15 knots.
Partly sunny skies are expected today, along with isolated showers and thunderstorms. Remember: If thunder roars, go indoors! The rip current risk remains low at area beaches today. 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.
Daily chances for isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms are expected through much of the upcoming week, as moisture increases across the region ahead of a cold front pushing south across Texas. Otherwise, hot and humid conditions will prevail with a mix of sun and clouds. High temperatures are expected to generally remain in the 90s to near 100 with a slight break in triple digit heat possible next week, with slightly cooler temperatures for the latter half of the work week. Overnight lows will range from the mid to upper 70s.
