Hurricane Maria Forecast To Bring Impacts To East Coast

Hurricane Maria will approach the Mid-Atlantic coast early this week then finally shove eastward into the open Atlantic. Maria will likely not make landfall but will come close to portions of North Carolina midweek and could bring tropical storm force winds, locally heavy rain, storm surge, and very rough surf. Maria will create hazardous surf and rip currents for much of the East Coast this week. Read More >

The combination of deep moisture, the sea breeze and local influences from a large area of low pressure across the upper levels of the atmosphere over the southwestern US will lead to scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms today across deep south Texas. The best rain chances will be expected to focus across Zapata, Starr and Jim Hogg counties. Otherwise, anticipate partly sunny skies with highs ranging from the low to upper 90s. Mariners should expect moderate southeast winds today with a moderate chop on the bay and gulf seas of 2 to 4 feet.
A low risk of rip currents is expected today along the beaches of South Padre Island and at Boca Chica State Park. However, rip currents can still develop, especially in the vicinity of the South Padre Island jetties. Scattered showers and thunderstorms will be possible today with partly sunny skies and afternoon temperatures in the upper 80s. Please remember: When thunder roars, go indoors!
Daily chances for isolated to scattered rain showers and thunderstorms are expected to continue through the week and into the upcoming weekend as moisture will remain across the region in advance of a cold front pushing south across Texas and a trough of low pressure in the southwestern U.S. across the upper levels of the atmosphere. High temperatures are expected to range from the upper 80s into the low to middle 90s this week while the overnight lows range from the upper 60s to the upper 70s.
