Partly cloudy skies with patchy marine fog can be expected today with highs ranging from the mid and upper 80s inland, mid 70s to mid 80s along the coast. Mariners are advised to navigate with caution this morning into this afternoon, as visibility may be slow to improve. There will be a moderate chop on the bay with Gulf seas of 2-4 feet.
There is a low risk of rip currents for today; however, if you do decide to brave the chilly 65 degree surf, life threatening rip currents can and do still occur, especially in the vicinity of the South Padre Island jetties. Expect partly cloudy skies today with mild afternoon temperatures. Patchy sea fog may be possible along the coast at times today.
Above average temperatures this weekend continue into next week. A stalling front to our north will lead to a chance for showers Sunday across the northern ranchlands and portions of the upper valley. Winds will increase Sunday into Monday afternoon especially, with very warm conditions for mid February. Rain and thunderstorm chances increase on Tuesday into Wednesday and continue through Thursday with the next cold frontal passage. Temperatures behind the front dip slightly on Thursday before rebounding into the weekend.
