High pressure to our east with south/southeast winds near the surface will allow temperatures to increase yet again this afternoon. Highs will range from the low to middle 90s for most of the inland areas, which will be 15-20 degrees above normal highs for late February. Adverse marine conditions are possible this morning for the offshore Gulf waters beyond 20 nautical miles, but winds should improve in the afternoon.
With continued elevated wave heights in the nearshore Gulf waters, the moderate risk of rip currents will continue today. If you decide to go to the beach for a swim, be sure to use caution and remain in water that is waist-deep or less, especially if you are a poor swimmer. If you just want to lay out on the beach, weather conditions will be very nice with mostly sunny skies and temperatures in the upper 70s. Don’t forget the sunblock!
Record-setting heat will continue through Tuesday with temperatures ranging from the 90s to near 100 degrees. The current forecast for McAllen (98) is 5 degrees above the daily high temperature record (93), so a new record will likely be set one more time before our next cold front moves through on Wednesday. Temperatures will finally drop to below-normal values for the beginning of March with increasing chances of precipitation as a disturbance moves into the region.
