There is a high risk of rip currents today for the coastal sections of Cameron, Willacy and Kenedy counties through 7 PM CDT this evening. Dangerous swimming conditions are anticipated today with rip currents possible in the surf zone along the lower Texas coast. Swim near a lifeguard. If caught in a rip current, relax and float. Don't swim against the current. If able, swim in a direction following the shoreline. If unable to escape, face the shore and call or wave for help.
A weak warm front heads north today with isolated showers, mainly across the northern ranchlands late this morning into this afternoon. Temperatures warm into the upper 70s to low 80s, still a few degrees below normal, under mostly cloudy skies. Small craft should exercise caution with breezy southeasterly winds, a moderate chop to choppy conditions on the bay, and building seas across the Gulf, especially beyond 20 nautical miles.
There is a HIGH risk of rip currents today. Temperatures along the beach will warm into the middle 70s under an increasingly cloudy sky. The UV Index will be in the Moderate category.
A few lingering showers are possible Friday in the northern Ranchlands as a cold front moves through the region. A northerly wind will push drier air over our central and western counties and create elevated fire weather conditions Saturday. Otherwise, we remain dry and warmer than normal through the weekend and early next week.
