.SHORT TERM (Today through Saturday)...

It will be hot and it will be dry, with the only real significant
weather being the fog in the early morning and possibly some heat
indices 105F or so near the Rio Grande on Saturday. There could
be a stray shower today but it will be quite isolated and short-
lived. Rain chances for Saturday look even lower at this time.
Clear to partly cloudy through the period, with heat indices
approaching 105F near the Rio Grande on Saturday afternoon. Light
south winds in the morning will become more southeast in the
afternoon with the passage of the sea-breeze. In short, weather
will be like the middle of summer in late May. For the most part,
the forecast was a blend of the previous forecast and

.MARINE (Today through Saturday)...

.LONG TERM (Saturday Night through Thursday)...

Mainly quiet weather will persist through the extended period as a
strong high pressure ridge remains overhead. There remains potential
for tropical or sub-tropical development in the eastern Gulf of
Mexico this weekend which would only help to keep sensible weather
quiet.  It could, however, depending on how strong it develops, push
longer period swells toward the Texas coast to increase the rip
current risk and the potential for minor coastal flooding early next
week.

Otherwise, Expect hot temperatures and dry conditions through the
forecast period. Temperatures will likely be above 100 degrees west
each day this week with mid and upper 90s east. Sunday through
Tuesday RH values decrease sufficiently in the daytime to keep HI
values below 105, however by Wednesday and Thursday some areas may
see heat indices of 105 to 109. Generally light to moderate south to
southeast surface winds are expected with abundant sunshine due to
the rather dry airmass.
