Update 9 am - Another warm day on tap for deep south Texas with a cold front trying to push into the north and central portions by this afternoon and early evening. The best chance of showers and thunderstorms will be along the frontal boundary late this afternoon into tonight. The front is expected to stall overnight and eventually push back north Thursday into Friday. Mariners are advised to use caution on nearshore and offshore waters today with seas of 4-6 feet and occasionally 7 feet beyond 20 nautical miles possible. A light chop on the bay will increase to a moderate chop this afternoon due to increasing southeasterly winds.
A high risk of life threatening rip currents will be likely in the surf zone today due to increasing southerly winds. Expect mostly cloudy skies with isolated showers and thunderstorms late this afternoon and high temperatures in the upper 70s.
A slight dip in temperatures on Thursday rises into the low 80s on Friday and near 90 on Saturday before the next cold front on Sunday kicks things back toward normal for late February. There's a chance of showers and thunderstorms Thursday due to the front stalling over the area today. Breezy and dry conditions with partly cloudy skies rule the start of the weekend, with showers and thunderstorms returning with the front on Sunday and lingering showers into Monday, mainly Monday morning.
