A mild and beautiful day is in the works for the Rio Grande Valley and Deep South Texas. Lots of sunshine is expected and will be accompanied by temperatures climbing into the middle to upper 80s this afternoon with light to modest north to northeast winds. Mariners heading out onto the lower Texas coastal waters can anticipate gulf seas of 4 to 7 feet, a light chop across the bay, and north to northeast winds of 5 to 15 knots. Small craft should exercise caution on the coastal gulf waters this afternoon due to elevated seas.
A moderate risk for rip currents will be expected today along the area beaches for continued elevated wave action. Remember to swim near a lifeguard if possible or use a non-inflatable flotation device, such as a life jacket or boogie board. Sunny skies will be expected today with temperatures reaching to near 80 degrees and northeast winds of 10 to 15 mph. Enjoy as it will be a beautiful day for a stroll on the beach with lower humidity values.
A pleasant stretch of weather will commence across the Rio Grande valley and the rest of deep south Texas through Friday with generally sunny to mostly sunny skies. Expect mild conditions through Tuesday afternoon before a secondary shot of some cooler air arrives for the middle to late half of the week. Another cold front will then move across deep south Texas sometime Friday night with a slight chance for rain showers. Expect even cooler temperatures behind this cold front with lows dropping into the 40s for some on Saturday morning and afternoon highs in the lower to middle 70s.
