Hazardous conditions will continue across the Lower Texas coastal waters today. A Small Craft Advisory for winds will continue for the Laguna Madre up until noon with rough conditions expected on the bay. The winds will subside into the afternoon with conditions subsiding to a moderate chop. A Small Craft Advisory is in effect for the coastal Gulf waters from 0-60 nautical miles out until 7 pm this evening with seas of 7 to 11 feet early before subsiding to 6 to 9 feet. Seas may be occasionally higher at times. A High Surf Advisory will continue until 1 pm this afternoon with waves of 6 to 8 feet across the surf zone, creating dangerous swimming conditions and possibly causing minor beach erosion.
[10:00 am Update] A more comfortable day can be expected across Deep South Texas as a result of a late season cold front that had passed through the region during the overnight hours. Expect mostly sunny skies with lower humidity values and temperatures reaching the middle to upper 80s in the afternoon. An elevated danger for the spread of fires is expected today for the Ranchlands and western sections of the Valley due to the low humidity.
There is a high risk of life threatening rip currents today at the beaches of South Padre Island and Boca Chica due to elevated wind driven seas and dangerous surf. Breezy winds are expected today with a slight diminishing of the winds in the afternoon. Otherwise, expect for skies to clear with progression into and through the afternoon as well. The UV index remains at an extreme level; make sure to apply and re-apply sunscreen often, as well as take advantage of any shade if possible.
Temperatures and the relative humidity will be back on the rise during the first half of the upcoming workweek with highs again reaching the 90s to near 100 on Wednesday. An another late season cold front will be on its way and will push across the area during Wednesday night into early Thursday. This front will bring a chance for rain and thunderstorms from Wednesday into Thursday with the highest coverage overnight. Behind the front, expect a comfortable end to the week featuring below to near normal average temperatures and lower humidity. Anticipate breezy northerly winds on Thursday in the wake of the front.
