A line of thunderstorms is expected to race across the region tonight, some of which could become severe. These storms could produce wind gusts to 70 mph, large hail, frequent lightning, and heavy rainfall. The timing of the severe weather is likely to be between 7 pm to 11 pm across Zapata, Jim Hogg, and Starr counties, between 9 pm for Hidalgo and Brooks counties, and between 11 pm and 3 am for Cameron, Willacy, and Kenedy counties. Be prepared! Move your car into a garage or under a carport, bring inside or fasten down lightweight objects, review your safety plans, and check the battery in your NOAA weather radio.
Another very warm day and humid day is on tap across the Rio Grande Valley and Deep South Texas. Temperatures will soar into upper 80s to lower 90s once again across the inland areas, except along the coast, where temperatures will be a little cooler with highs in the upper 70s and lower 80s. Mostly cloudy skies are expected, but there should be some breaks in the cloud cover, especially this afternoon. Breezy southeasterly winds will average 15 to 20 mph today, with higher gusts possible. If you're heading out on the lower Texas coastal waters today, southeasterly winds will increase this morning into this afternoon and small craft should exercise caution on the offshore Gulf waters.
A moderate risk of rip currents is expected today at area beaches due to elevated wave heights. Under partly sunny skies, temperatures will warm into the upper 70s. South to southeasterly winds will be on the breezy side today, averaging 15 to 20 mph with higher gusts. If you decide to enter the 72 degree surf, it's recommended to use a non- inflatable flotation device, such as a life jacket or boogie board.
Shower and thunderstorm chances continue on Monday, with the best chances Monday morning, generally east of Highway 281. A few showers will be possible on Tuesday before drier air moves in ending rain chances for the work week. Benign weather will follow until a dry front arrives late Friday.
