Expect a beautiful day across the Rio Grande valley and deep south Texas with occasional high level clouds and afternoon high temperatures in the upper 60s and low 70s. For the mariners, expect rather benign conditions across the lower Texas coastal waters featuring a light chop on the Laguna Madre and gulf seas of 1 to 4 feet.
The area beaches will feature mostly sunny skies today with mainly the passing of high level clouds and afternoon temperatures near 70 degrees. In addition to the nice weather, expect a low risk for rip currents with minor wave heights. However, if you do decide to brave the cool 65 degree surf, life threatening rip currents can and do still occur, especially in the vicinity of the South Padre Island jetties. Enjoy.
Mild conditions will be expected on Thursday with increasing cloud cover and isolated rain showers. A cold front will then sweep across the Rio Grande valley and deep south Texas late Thursday night into the pre-dawn hours on Friday. The front will bring rain and much cooler temperatures across the region. In fact, temperatures are expected to drop throughout the day on Friday. Expect the overcast skies, rain chances and cool weather to linger through Saturday. Sunday will see the potential for some peeks of sun with milder temperatures. A second cold front will move across the region on Monday with a slight chance of showers across the eastern half of deep south Texas.
