There is an elevated threat for erratic fire behavior today with low relative humidity values and increasing winds this afternoon. Hot temperatures are expected again today across most of Deep South Texas and the Rio Grande Valley with a few locations expected to be near or into triple digits. Remember to stay hydrated and take water with you if you plan to be outside, as well as making sure your pets have shade, shelter, and water. For the mariners, expect winds to increase into this afternoon with a moderate chop becoming choppy on the bay and seas of 2-3 feet in the Gulf. Small craft may need to exercise caution this afternoon.
Another pleasant day at the beaches is expected today, with sunny skies and high temperatures in the mid to upper 80s. The rip current risk remains low today; however, rip currents often develop in the vicinity of the South Padre Island jetties, so use caution if you enter the surf. Remember to apply, and re-apply sunblock!
Dry conditions rule through the weekend and into next week for the Rio Grande Valley and Deep South Texas, with temperatures taking only a slight dip back into the low and mid 80s behind a weak cold front on Friday, before rising back into the 90s for much of the region into next week.
