A cold front works southward through deep south Texas and the Rio Grande Valley this evening into tonight, creating numerous hazards across coastal, nearshore and offshore waters of the lower Texas coast. A Small Craft Advisory for winds is in effect for the Laguna Madre from 8pm this evening until 9am Sunday morning with rough conditions expected and northerly winds 20-25 kts. A Gale Warning is in effect for Gulf waters 0-60 nautical miles east of Padre Island from 8pm this evening until 9am Sunday morning with northerly winds increasing to 25-30 knots, gale force gusts and seas building from 3- 6 feet to 6-9 and occasionally 10 feet.
A cold front will move through the rest of the Rio Grande valley this evening and temperatures will continue to fall overnight. Lows will be in the lower 50s north to mid to upper 50s south to the lower 60s along the lower Texas coast. Partly cloudy skies will prevail across the area tonight with north winds increasing to 15 to 20 mph in the wake of the front. For the coastal waters…small craft advisories are in effect for the Laguna Madre and a Gale Warning is in effect for the offshore waters tonight for strong winds and high seas developing in the wake of the cold front.
Winds will be breezy early Sunday with the final push of much cooler air into deep south Texas and the Rio Grande Valley. Well below normal temperatures rule through Monday before a quick near normal resurgence on Tuesday. Another cold front will dip temperatures back into the low and mid 70s into late next week. Overnight low temperatures this week will be chilly. Thanksgiving looks partly cloudy with a chilly start in the mid 40s and high temperatures in the low to mid 70s.
