Another hot and breezy day expected for the region with high temperatures ranging from the mid 90s along the coast to a few degrees beyond the century mark in the mid and upper Rio Grande Valley, as well as northern ranchlands. Mariners can expect seas of 3-5 feet on the Gulf, with a moderate chop increasing to choppy conditions on the bay due to increasing southeast winds this afternoon.
A moderate risk for life threatening rip currents is possible this morning along area beaches. Remember to swim near a lifeguard and with a non-inflatable flotation device, such as a life jacket or boogie board. Expect another hot afternoon, with highs near the low 90s and heat indices up to 107-110 degrees. Be safe, stay hydrated and have fun!
High pressure continues to keep a hot and dry pattern through the weekend, with afternoon temperatures ranging from the mid 90s to a few degrees above 100 each afternoon. Even higher heat indices or "feels like" temperatures are expected when humidity is factored in, reaching up to 110 degrees in many areas. Overnight lows will remain warm, ranging from the upper 70s into the low 80s. Partly cloudy skies continue through the weekend with isolated sea breeze showers and thunderstorms possible on Monday and Tuesday.
