South Texas to Warm Back into the 80s This Week
After a cold snap to set the scene for Halloween weekend, the sun is back out over South Texas and the first week of November should be pretty laid back with temps rising from the mid-70s to the mid-80s.
Aside from near picture-perfect temps outside, we are looking at a small craft advisory for a portion of our Monday afternoon with Northeast winds around 30 knots and gusts at up to 20 knots. Seas will be 6 to 8 feet before calming later in the day. The advisory is for waters from Port Aransas to the Matagorda Ship Channel, and waters from the Baffin Bay to Port Aransas.
If you are headed for the beach this week remember There is a LOW risk of rip currents along the Middle Texas Coast today, but keep in mind that low risk does not mean any risk, take the appropriate precautions when at the beach.
The week ahead will be mainly dry and sunny, with rain chances near 10% through Saturday when we see a slight increase for precipitation by next week.
In the tropics, Hurricane Eta is the only system near the Gulf of Mexico that is being tracked by the National Hurricane Center and appears to be no threat to the Texas coast as the storm appears to be headed for land in Mexico. We will continue to monitor any changes in Eta.
