A Wind Advisory is in effect today for Cameron, Willacy and Kenedy counties from 11am this morning until 6pm this evening. Expect southerly winds of 25 to 35 mph with gusts up to 40 mph. Please be careful when driving as high profile and light vehicles will be difficult to drive today, especially on east-west highways. Additionally, make sure to secure any light to moderate weight outdoor objects as they may blow away.
Hazardous conditions will develop across the nearshore and offshore waters of the lower Texas coast this morning. A Small Craft Advisory is in effect for the Laguna Madre from 9am this morning until 7pm this evening with choppy to rough conditions on the bay. A Small Craft Advisory is in effect for all Gulf waters 0-60 nautical miles out from 9am this morning through Saturday evening with seas of 5-8 and occasionally 10 feet.
Hot and windy conditions return to deep south Texas and the Rio Grande Valley today. A Wind Advisory is in effect for the eastern coastal counties from 11am this morning until 6pm this evening.

Don’t forget your pets and outside animals! For the mariners, Small Craft Advisories are in effect starting at 9am this morning and continuing until 6pm on the Laguna Madre and through Saturday evening for all Gulf waters.
There is a high risk of life threatening rip currents today at the beaches of South Padre Island and Boca Chica due to elevated wind driven seas.

Swimming is not recommended for today. Don’t forget to grab the sunscreen, and to re-apply it often, if heading out to sunbathe on the beach, as the UV index is in the extreme range.
Very hot conditions will continue Saturday with highs ranging from the mid 90s to near 107 in portions of Starr and Zapata counties. A developing storm system in the Plains this weekend will keep winds breezy across Deep South Texas before an associated cold front moves through early Sunday.
