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 >

Rich moisture across deep south Texas will lead to a scattered chance for rain showers and thunderstorms today with the highest chances concentrating across the upper valley and western ranchlands. Partly sunny to mostly cloudy skies are expected with afternoon highs ranging from the low 90s to the upper 90s. Mariners should expect an increasing chop this afternoon across the bay and gulf seas around 2 to 4 feet.
Heading out to the local beaches today? The rip current risk remains low today. Although the rip current risk remains low, rip currents are still possible, especially in the vicinity of the South Padre Island Jetties. Scattered showers and thunderstorms will be possible today with partly cloudy skies in the morning and mostly cloudy skies during the afternoon. When thunder roars, go indoors! Afternoon high temperatures will reach the upper 80s today with the UV index in the very high range.
Daily chances for isolated to scattered rain showers and thunderstorms are expected to continue through the week and into the beginning of this 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 towards the west 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 overnight lows generally trend in the 70s.
