The Rio Grande Valley and the rest of deep south Texas will trend warm and windy today under partly cloudy skies. Conditions will be expected to change tonight, especially after midnight, as rain and thunderstorms move across the region. A few of these storms may become strong tonight with heavy rain, gusty winds and possibly hail.
[10:35 am Update] A Wind Advisory is now in effect for Cameron, Hidalgo, Kenedy and Willacy counties from 11 am this morning until 5 pm this evening. South winds will increase to around 25 to 35 mph with gusts up to near 45 mph possible. Please drive with caution and secure light objects.
Hazardous marine conditions expected today across the lower Texas coastal waters thanks to southerly winds of around 20 knots with higher gusts possible. A Small Craft Advisory for Winds will be in effect across the Laguna Madre from 10 am this morning until 6 pm this evening. A Small Craft Advisory will be in effect across the coastal gulf waters from 0 to 60 nautical miles out from 10 am this morning until 9 pm tonight.
A moderate rip current risk is expected today on the beaches of South Padre Island and at Boca Chica Beach from elevated swell and wind- driven waves. If you decide to enter the 63 degree surf, it's recommended to remain in water that is waist deep or less and to stay near a lifeguard, if possible. Partly cloudy skies are expected with mild afternoon temperatures and windy conditions.
A cold front moving across deep south Texas on Sunday will lead to the chance for rain and thunderstorms on Sunday with lingering showers into Monday. Additionally, expect slightly cooler air for Sunday night into Monday. Warmer and breezier conditions will return midweek with Wednesday becoming windy in the afternoon. A second cold front will then move across the region on Wednesday night into Thursday with a slight chance for rain and thunderstorms.
