The combination of wind driven waves and southeasterly swell will result in a High Risk of rip currents at the local area beaches. This will result in dangerous swimming conditions for all swimmers for the Memorial Day holiday weekend.
Moderate to breezy southeasterly winds and hazardous seas will result in hazardous marine conditions today on the lower Texas coastal waters. A Small Craft Advisory for Winds is in effect on the bay from 10 am this morning until 7 pm tonight while the coastal gulf waters out to 60 nm have a Small Craft Advisory through at least 1 pm this afternoon.
Deep south Texas will experience another hot day with humid conditions and breezy southeasterly winds. Heat indices or the "feels like" temperatures will peak between 103 and 108 degrees once again today. Be sure to drink plenty of water and avoid spending extended time outside today. In addition, be sure to check the backseat for children and pets before locking your vehicle. For the mariners, Small Craft Advisories are in effect across the coastal gulf waters due to hazardous winds and seas.
A HIGH risk of rip currents is expected again today at the area beaches due to rough surf from the combination of breezy southeasterly winds and swell. Expect partly cloudy skies with high temperatures in the upper 80s to low 90s. The UV index remains at extreme levels, so apply sunscreen often.
No escape from the heat and the humidity through the next 5 days across deep south Texas as afternoon high temperatures remain in the 90s to near 100 degrees with peak heat indices or "feels like" temperatures between 103 and 108 degrees. At night, temperatures will only drop into the mid 70s to near 80 degrees. Be sure to drink plenty of water and use sunscreen if outside for a prolonged period of time. Otherwise, expect rain free conditions under mainly partly cloudy skies with breezy southeasterly winds.
