There are no watches, warnings, or advisories at this time.

Another cool start this morning across deep south Texas but temperatures will become mild by the afternoon under mostly sunny skies. Today’s high temperatures are actually expected to become a few degrees above normal for this time of year. For the mariners heading out on the lower Texas coastal waters, expect light and variable winds around 5 knots with a light chop on the bay and gulf seas of 2 feet or less.
Mostly sunny skies with light and variable winds will be expected today for the beaches of South Padre Island and Boca Chica State Park. The light winds and low wave heights will lead to a low risk of rip currents for today. However, if you do decide to brave the cool 63 degree surf, life threatening rip currents can and do still occur, especially in the vicinity of the South Padre Island jetties.
A series of weak cold fronts will influence the weather pattern this week across the Rio Grande valley and deep south Texas. The first of the two cold fronts arrives on Tuesday and will remain a dry front with no precipitation expected. This cold front will lead to a slight decrease in temperatures into and throughout the day on Wednesday. The second cold front is expected to arrive on Thursday with an increase in clouds and a slight chance of rain on Thursday. Slightly cooler temperatures will trend on Friday into Saturday morning with each day featuring a slight chance of showers in the lower valley.
